Prosciutto is an Italian dry-cured ham known for the intensity of its flavor and rosy color.  Prosciutto bread uses chopped pieces or prosciutto and hard and diced parmesan cheese as a blended ingredient in the dough.  This recipe is easy to make in your bread machine from start to finish using the white bread setting.
