Ingredients for Ham and melon in cannolo
250 g of ricotta cheese
40 g of grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
25 g of chopped pistachios
1 lemon
300 g of yellow melon
Black Cyprus salt
Dry chilli pepper


Leave some space at the two ends of the cannolo cylinder, so it will be easier to push the mold out so as not to break the ham wafer.


Ham and melon, I don't invent anything, but let's revisit this dish with a little imagination. The ham will become a cannolo, for this we need the special cylinder molds, brush them with oil and roll the slices of ham around it. Bake at 150 degrees to toast, when the ham is toasted, take it out of the oven, let it cool and remove from the mold. We sift the ricotta and mix it well with the grated Parmesan, a part of the pistachio grains and the chopped lemon zest. We will accompany this finger with a sweet shot of melon: we whisk the yellow melon cut into pieces and put it to cool in the refrigerator. With the sac à poche we fill the cannoli with the ricotta filling, first on one side, then on the other. We pass them, just like Sicilian cannoli, in the pistachio grain, to make them even more beautiful. We serve two cannoli per serving, pour the melon soup into the glasses and season it with crystals of black salt and dried red pepper flakes.
