Involtini à la Saltimbocca

Wash the veal, pat dry and lay out side by side.

Cut the mozarella into small pieces.

Top each meat with a slice of dried prosciutto and spread sage and mozzarella on top. Pepper (do not salt!).

Carefully roll up and pin with toothpicks or roulade needles. Now may be salted and peppered.

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Cook the involtini on all sides for 10 – 15 min. Sauté until hot.
Thorsten says:
In no case too much meat per pan. Then the meat loses so much juice that it can no longer be seared, but rather stews in its own juices. In this case, drain the meat juice quickly.

Fine tomato sauce (if desired)

Best prepared beforehand.

Score the skin of the tomatoes and cook for 5 min. place in hot water.

Now the peel can be pulled off quite easily. Puree tomato pulp and sift as desired.

Heat in a saucepan, add the mascarpone and whisk well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
