Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6-8
 
Ingredients
  • 14 slices of prosciutto (about 120 gm)
  • 1 jar of pesto (I used a complementary jar of Roza’s Dairy Free Pesto)
  • ½ cup raw cashews, chopped finely
  • 1.5 kg piece of beef eye fillet
  • Fresh basil to serve
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Preheat oven to 200°C. Place 7 prosciutto slices in a row, side-by-side and slightly overlapping, to create a rectangle. Repeat with the remaining prosciutto slices, slightly overlapping, at the long side of the first rectangle.
  2. Mix the cashews and pesto together in a small bowl. Spread the pesto mix over the beef. Place the beef, dip-side down, on the prosciutto. Roll up to enclose the beef. Place the beef, seam-side down, in a roasting pan. Roast for 45 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil. Set aside for 10 minutes to rest. Top with basil.

Note: the original recipe can be found on www.taste.com.au and used Wattle Valley Baby Spinach with Cashew and Parmesan Chunky Dip
