INGREDIENTS FOR 2 PEOPLE:
- 300 grams of meat (make sure it’s cut very thin);
- 1 mozzarella (cheese);
- 100 grams of cooked ham;
- 10 ripe cherry tomatoes;
- extra virgin olive oil;
- 1 clove of garlic;
- green pepper in grains;
- 3 leaves of basil.
PREPARATION OF THE CARPACCIO PRIMAVERA
Take a baking pan like the one you can see in the picture below. I suggest you to use an oven dish, because the last step of the recipe requires the oven. Pour some extra virgin olive oil into it. Add the clove of garlic to the pan. I love the garlic: I doubled the dose. Light up the fire and let the garlic brown slightly, with a moderate heat. The smell is great 🙂
Now add the rosemary, the green pepper in grains and the slices of meat. Now we take care of the meat slices. Be careful: they are very thin, so the cooking time will be very fast. As you may notice in the picture below I use to stack up the cooked slices in a side corner of my baking pan, where the flame doesn’t touch the surface.
You could even put the slices in a separate plate, outside the pan.Remember to add some salt while cooking the meat. At this point I suggest you to turn on the oven and set the temperature to 180 ° C (350 ° F). We’ll need it soon.
Now it’s time to cut in four parts the ripe cherry tomatoes. I’ve done it quickly in a side corner of my cutting board.Do the same with the ham and then add it to the meat, together with the tomatoes.Slice up the mozzarella as you did with the ham and the tomatoes.
Add the mozzarella to the pan. The picture below shows how the pan should look like… Of course the quantities of mozzarella, ham and tomatoes may vary according to your taste.Place the pan in the oven and let it there for five minutes, or until the cheese has melted over the tomatoes.
When you think it’s ready, remove the cooking pan from the oven and add the basil leaves. Your dish is finally ready!
