Prosciutto-Wrapped Peaches with Basil and Aged Balsamic
I got this recipe from a blog. I wish i could remember which one! It's oh-so-good!!! We ate it over a salad but it would also make a wonderful snack or appetizer.
* * 16 thin slices of pancetta if you cannot find sliced pancetta easily, prosciutto will work just fine * 2 medium freestone peaches-halved, pitted and cut into 8 wedges each * Salt and freshly ground pepper * 16 basil leaves * 1 tablespoon olive oil * Aged balsamic vinegar, for drizzling
1. Lay the pancetta slices out on a work surface. Set a peach wedge at the edge of each slice, season with salt and pepper and top with a basil leaf. Roll up the pancetta to enclose the peaches.
2. In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil. Add half of the wrapped peaches and cook over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until the pancetta is browned and crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a platter and repeat with the remaining peaches.
3. Lightly drizzle the peaches with aged balsamic vinegar and serve
