Uses for diced prosciutto?

I could just smack myself upside the head! I was at the store after dinner tonight, and in the deli section they had 7 oz. packages of diced prosciutto that expire March 8th at half off, so only $2.99 each. I stood there staring at one in my hand deciding if there was anything I could use it for, or if I could freeze it, then decided against it.

On the way home I thought, Spaghetti Carbonara! Argh, now I have to scurry back there in the morning.

In the meantime, I thought I'd ask, what else could diced prosciutto be used for? I googled freezing prosciutto—it appears if I make a foil pouch for it, then seal it inside a freezer bag, it should last a few months. At this price I'm not opposed to buying a second package to test this out if there's another good use for it.

Any ideas or suggestions or a good recipe using diced prosciutto? Thanks!
