Absolutely gorgeous starter for a 3 course meal we had. The garlic really elevates the flavour. Had it with Norwegian smoked ham (spekeskinke). Very easy and adaptable.

This was a treat for us, as Portobello Mushrooms are hard to get in Spain, but a recent trip to Gibraltor helped here, we used Serrano Ham, and Mozarella, and added a chopped vine tomato, oh and pesto but again delicioso and easy.

I made this as a starter, so halfed the portions for a girley night on saturday. I used pancetta cubes sprinkled on top instead of the ham. Everyone really enjoyed it. My main course was the hot smoked salmon salad (see recipe) which also went down very well.

really easy, I usually make this for a quick lunch. I've tried it with blue cheese instead of the goat's cheese, and also tried it with bacon instead of ham, both very yummy!
