   12                    figs, 1/4 cut open at top but -- left whole at base
    6      ounces        Gorgonzola cheese -- at room temp
    2      tablespoons   walnuts -- finely chopped
    2      bunches       Italian parsley, finely chopped -- to yield 1/2C
    8      ounces        Prosciutto di Parma -- sliced paper thin
 
 Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
 
 Place figs on non-greased baking sheet, opening with fingers as best you can. In
a mixing bowl, stir together Gorgonzola cheese, chopped walnuts and chopped
parsley until well mixed. Using a tablespoon, stuff 1 tablespoon filling in each
fig.
 
 Bake figs 8 to 10 minutes, until cheese filling is bubbling out. Meanwhile, lay 3

 Remove figs from oven, place 3 in center of each plate and serve immediately.
