Crispy Prosciutto Tartines with Whipped Feta and Pistachio Pesto


Recipe Intro From thefeedfeed

This easy tartine is a great lunch recipe to make while you’re WFH, but can also be made into fancy crostinis for the holiday season! This recipe comes together quickly and relies on Fiorucci Prosciutto Di Parma for an extra punch of savory flavor. We can't forget about the nutty pistachio pesto and the bright, lemony whipped feta, which are the perfect compliments to the crispy prosciutto. This recipe brings together and is inspired by a few different Italian recipes - plus, it's based on the colors of the flag!

This October, we're celebrating Italian Heritage Month, and what better way to do so than with Fiorucci, who have been producing high-quality and authentic Italian products for 170 years. Fiorucci uses both old-world techniques and modern ways to deliver the tastes of Italy no matter where you are.
