Notes

* or you can use one 8-ounce can Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations refrigerated seamless dough sheets

Make It Your Own: Something as plain as a straight sheet of dough can be one of the most versatile ingredients to use. Swap the Mediterranean fillers with mozzarella and pepperoni and, suddenly, you’ve taken the dish to Italy. A few sprinkles of Pepper Jack cheese, sour cream, and guacamole will suddenly take you south. The sky’s the limit when you use a little imagination to spice up your night.       

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • One  8-ounce can Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 1/2  Pound  prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • 1  Cup  crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  pepper
  • 1  Tablespoon  pure vegetable oil
  • 6  Tablespoons  chopped fresh basil

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Grease 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. Separate or cut the refrigerated dough into 4 rectangles and place on lightly floured surface. If using crescent rolls, firmly press the perforations to seal. Press or roll each to form an 8-by-5-inch rectangle.

Arrange ¼ of the prosciutto slices evenly over each rectangle. In a small bowl, mix the cheese, pepper, and oil. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the prosciutto on each rectangle. Sprinkle with basil.

Starting at short side of each rectangle, roll up and seal the long edges. With serrated knife, cut each roll into 5 slices. Place each roll, cut side up, on the baking sheets.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the baking sheets and serve warm.

Mediterranean Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Mediterranean Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
