Have fun with your friends and family creating these whimsical, fish-free Italian flavored prosciutto and rice rolls.


  • 3 cups cooked short or medium grain rice, cooled
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan-Romano cheese blend
  • 2/3 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 8-10 large thin slices prosciutto (cured Italian ham)
  • 1 (7-ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained and cut in strips


  • Combine rice, cheese, half and half, and basil in large bowl. Place 1 prosciutto slice on cutting board; spread 1/2 cup rice mixture evenly over prosciutto, pressing slightly. Arrange a few pepper strips lengthwise down center over rice; carefully roll into a log, about 8 inches long and 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Repeat with remaining prosciutto slices; refrigerate 15 minutes. Cut each roll crosswise into 1-inch pieces, placing on platter, cut side up, to resemble sushi. Serve at room temperature.
