Make your cheese mixture:

Assembly line for battering.


Fry the prosciutto in a pan, then cook the spinach right behind it to pick up the flavors.


Mix the cheese, prosciutto, and cooked spinach together. 


Spread the cheese. 


I tied these, but I think I like just rolling them and not tying them- it was a mess.


Sprinkle on the tony's after rolling!
