While we were in Roma of all places, we met a couple from San Francisco, whom are still good friends despite the distance, and Shelli who was from Missouri originally, had given me this recipe to try. She wrote down the ingredients, and one day while we were in Puglia, I tried it. I call it Involtini al Vitello di Saltimbocca. Involtini simply means the scaloppine are rolled with prosciutto di parma and dredged & dusted in flour, and then sautéed.
This recipe can be prepared with chicken scaloppine too.
