  • 300g tub light soft cheese
  • 2 tbsp basil pesto



    Pesto is a generic Italian name for any sauce made by pounding ingredients together.


  • 140g pack grissini stick (bread sticks)
  • 90g pack prosciutto



    Prosciutto is a sweet, delicate ham intended to be eaten raw. The word 'prosciutto' is…

  • 1 tbsp pine nut
  • extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling


  1. Mix the soft cheese with 2 tbsp basil pesto. Take the pack grissini (bread sticks) and halve each one. Cut the prosciutto into strips and wrap around the end of each grissini. Serve alongside the pesto dip. Scatter the pine nuts over dip and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil before serving.

I made it for the end of term Italian class and my Italian teacher was very impressed with the pesto dip. Very easy to make and the home-made dip gives this special quality to the popular snack.
