Ingredients:
Wraps
3 slices Picante Prosciutto (sliced in half long ways)
1/3 cup Arugula
2 oz Goat cheese
1 tbsp 1 tsp pine nuts
1 tbsp 1/2 tsp chives

Raspberry Vinaigrette Reduction
1/3 cup balsamic
1/4 cup raspberries (mashed)
1/4 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp black pepper

Wraps
Mix together goat cheese, pine nuts, chives and pepper in a small bowl and make into 6 even elongated lumps.  Separate the arugula into 6 even bunches.
