Only OK not fantastic for the amount of work. Did add extra basil & cheese but was bland except for the prosciutto. May try again with Havarti cheese or another that had a taste to it.

The leftovers were great on a hamburger roll the next day!

Totally yummy, and really FUN to make!

Loved this. I'm keeping this recipe for times when I want to show off a little.
