Adored this recipe, I agree with Natalie that it does need slightly less cheese though, but it does keep well in the fridge if you are lucky enough to get leftovers and is lovely cold! Another slight change i had was using parma ham as that was all i had in fridge!! but worked out lovely

My husband really enjoyed this. I think there was too much soft cheese on so will use less next time.
