Lioni Latticini’s Bocconcini Wrapped with Proscuitto

Sometimes it seems disappointing that the hunt for most Italian products is over, now that most things are not only imported, but also made by American manufacturers.

On the other hand, how lovely!

My mother recently bought fresh mozzarella from Lioni Latticini’s and followed their online recipe for Bocconcini Wrapped with Proscuitto. It is a little risky to cook mozzarella, for both the final product and the person who has to clean the pan, but on a low enough heat, these little mozzarella balls warmed up nicely and the prosciutto did, too. With some fresh sage and olive oil, it is a quick and delicious appetizer. The salt in the prosciutto is a lovely addition to the unsalted mozzarella.
