  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • In a small saucepan, bring the tomato-basil sauce and red pepper flakes to a simmer over medium heat. Cook uncovered until thick, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the basil.

  • Preheat the broiler.

  • Place six 5-ounce ramekins on a baking sheet. Divide the sauce equally among the ramekins. Divide the prosciutto among the ramekins. Place the slices of mozzarella between 3 paper towels to absorb any excess moisture. Place the slices of mozzarella on top of the prosciutto. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the Gruyere on top.

  • Broil until the cheese is melted and golden brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Serve with grilled bread.
