Sushi Di Italia

“Rice to the Rescue!” Recipe Contest Winner - Leah Lyon
Yield: Makes 16 servings (about 64 pieces).



    • 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.
