Spiedini are a classic and loved by millions of people, whether they are Roman or not and we find them on restaurant menus all over the world. They may look quite tricky to make but they aren’t and the thing that makes it an even more desirable menu is that it really isn’t all that expensive because there’s no meat – unless you count four slices of prosciutto as meat. This is a must-have recipe.
