How to make it

  • In a small skillet, toast pine nuts over very low heat, occasionally shaking pan back and forth, until nuts are lightly browned and fra¬grant, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Bring saucepan of salted water to boil. Drop tomatoes into water and boil 30 seconds; drain, peel, seed and roughly chop.
  • Set a fine-mesh sieve over a large glass measure or container, then transfer tomato to sieve and let drain until liquid from tomatoes is separated from pulp, 3 to 5 hours, depending on juiciness of toma¬toes. ( can be done in the morning ) Discard Juices or save for another use.
  • Set aside 1 tablespoon pine nuts and 1 tablespoon chopped olives for garnish. Tear cheese into small pieces; put pieces into a bowl. Add tomato pulp, remaining pine nuts, remaining olives, oil, basil and generous pinch pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Center 1 slice prosciutto overl ramekin; press prosciutto into edges of ramekin. Center a second slice over the first to make a cross; press second slice into edges of ramekin. Spoon a quarter of the cheese mixture into prepared ramekin, then pull up ends of prosciutto to cre¬ate a sack. Gently tie together sack with 1 chive. Repeat with remain¬ing prosciutto, cheese mixture and chives to make 4 pouches.
  • Divide lettuce among 4 serving plates; drizzle with oil and season with pepper. Gently remove fagottini from ramekins and transfer onto the lettuce, garnish with reserved pine nuts and olives.
