  1. 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  2. 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  3. 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  4. ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  5. ½ pound fresh medium-size okra, halved lengthwise and seeded
  6. 6 slices prosciutto
  7. Olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, lemon zest, seasoned salt, and red pepper, mixing well. Fill okra halves with approximately 2 teaspoons cream cheese mixture, being careful to avoid overfilling.
  3. Stack prosciutto, and slice lengthwise into 3 strips; cut each strip in half. Wrap prosciutto around stuffed okra, allowing prosciutto to overlap. Place okra on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake until prosciutto is slightly crispy, 8 to 10 minutes. Drizzle with olive oil, if desired. Serve immediately.
