Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Arrange the prosciutto slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for about 6 minutes, flipping halfway, until crispy. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  3. Add the baguette slices to another baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil on both sides. Toast in the oven for 7–10 minutes, flipping halfway, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  4. Meanwhile, add the ricotta, 1 tablespoon olive oil, the lemon zest, and a pinch of salt to a food processor. Blend until whipped and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  5. Use a vegetable peeler to thinly slice the zucchini into ribbons. Transfer to a medium bowl and toss with pepper, salt, and a drizzle of olive oil.
  6. When ready to assemble, rub each toasted baguette slice on both sides with the cut side of a garlic clove.
  7. Spread about 2 tablespoons of the whipped ricotta onto each piece of toast. Wrap the zucchini ribbons around your fingers to curl, then place on the ricotta-topped toast. Top each piece with a crumbled half-slice of crispy prosciutto. Garnish with the parsley, salt, and pepper.
  8. Enjoy!
