Preheat the oven to 180°C. Flatten the garlic cloves with a knife, without peeling them. Place on a baking sheet, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and put in the oven for 15 minutes. Now peel the garlic, put into a foodprocessor, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and blend.

Spread the slices pancetta on a roasting pan and place the rabbit pieces on top. Add the garlic and sprinkle with salt, pepper, thyme and paprika. Roll the pancetta over the stuffing and tie up with butcher’s twine. Lightly brush the top with olive oil and transfer the roasting pan to the oven for 35 minutes. Enjoy!
