This recipe is a hit with my friends and their families. I've made it so many times I don't even have to think about it anymore.

* It can be made without the prosciutto for a vegetarian dish.

** Bacon, ham, smoked sausage, pepperoni may be used in place of prosciutto.

*** Make ahead and serve cold as a side dish.
