Jessica Corwin MPH RDN says:
Less than 3 oz of prosciutto packs over 200 calories, 14g fat, & 5g saturated (the un-healthy kind) fat. Plus, a significant amount of sodium & dietary cholesterol. Try swapping prosciutto for thinly sliced honey roasted turkey to truly trim the fat.
Jessica Corwin MPH RDN says:
If you treat this recipe as the small-bite appetizer that it is, please savor the flavor. Any more than that and the fat and sodium from the proscioutto will add up quickly.

Big Dave from SLN says:
Sounds yummy, but I agree with Jessica's note that perhaps turkey could be a weight-conscious option in place of the prosciutto. Either way, it sounds like a really rich dish that could go well in small batches as part of a decadent salad with a bit of balsamic and lemon juice for dressing and hefty bunches of fresh basil, parsley, and spinach.
