Easy Peasy Prosciutto Panini "XIII"

Panini means bread roll in Italiano, in Hokkien(Singaporean dialect), it means "slap boob", LOL i fuckin swear.

Anyways, heres a really delightful recipe i whipped up over leftover prosciuttos last night.

Perfect for a take-away office lunch or anytime you feel like it.

This is way too good for easy peasy food.
Try it yourself to believe, details below.

I used foccacia bread and got them toasted cause' i like them better that way.

Here's how you do it:

serves bout 4

300-400g good bread roll (try Gardenia's foccacia)
12 paper-thin slices of Prosciutto di Parma
Parmesan, shaved, you decide the amount ; )
2 Handfuls arugula (rocket), stems picked, washed
Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
Sea Salt and Black Pepper (S&P)

Slice bread into half, toast(optional), rub garlic, sprinkle S&P and drizzle EVOO.
Lay Prosciutto slices on one side of the bread, sprinkle parmesan shavings and add rocket leaves. Sandwich tight with the other half, give it a little squeeze.

Bon appetit.
