Puff pastry purses with zucchini, brie and prosciutto

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon Butter
4 mediums Zucchini; (about 5 cups), cut crosswise, 1/4\" thick slices
7 \N Cloves garlic; minced
½ cup Parmesan cheese; freshly grated
1 pack Frozen puff pastry; (17-1/4 ounces), thawed
10 \N Cubes Brie; (3/4 inch cubes), (about 12 ounces), rind removed
10 slices Prosciutto; thinly sliced
\N \N Fresh parsley; (optional), chopped
\N \N Red bell pepper; (optional), sliced

Preheat oven to 400øF. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in large skillet over medium- high heat. Add zucchini slices and garlic and saute until zucchini is tender, about 7 minutes. Cool slightly. Mix in grated Parmesan cheese.

Roll out each pastry sheet to 16 x 11 inch rectangle. Cut five 5 x 5 inch squares from each pastry sheet (reserve extra pastry for another use).

Press each pastry square into ⅓ cup muffin cup, leaving overhang.

Place ¼ cup zucchini mixture in each pastry-lined muffin cup, dividing equally. Place 1 Brie cube atop each. Place 1 prosciutto slice atop Brie.

Gather edges of puff pastry together and pinch firmly at top, forming purses.

Bake purses in cups until golden, about 15 minutes. Place 1 purse on each plate. Garnish each plate with chopped parsley and red bell pepper slices, if desired, and serve.
