Paté di Prosciutto Cotto Affumicato for Crostini

INGREDIENTS (to serve 4 people):

200 g smoked cooked ham 
200 g of Ricotta Cheese or Mascarpone Cheese 
40 g unsalted butter (at room temperature) 
salt to taste 
black pepper to taste  (ground fresh from the mill)
a loaf of rustic bread 


Put the “prosciutto cotto affumicato” in a food processor. 
Pulse a few time more. 
Slowly add the butter and ricotta or mascarpone and salt and black pepper, in a constant stream while the food processor is on. Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula. The patè must be quite tender and juicy and not dried. In the meantime slice the rustic bread in 1cm thick slices. Grill the rustic bread slices to a golden brown. Spoon a generous amount of pate onto each bread slice. Serve immediately (if you like, more black pepper on the top).

Buon Appetito!!!!!!
