Saltimbocca (Beef roll with sage leaf)


This was the 1st time I use sage leaf in the cooking. I tried this recipe as seen in Flavours food magazine, this is how they described Saltimbocca -Popular in Rome, this dish is usually served with a salad and boiled potatoes for dinner. You can also vary the ingredients to make a vegetarian version, replacing thinly sliced eggplant for the beef and stuff the roll with parsley, tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.

I like sage too in roast chicken. It is better to plant it yourself so you can use it anytime you want. If you want I can bring home some seeds for you. Let me know.

I also don't use sage too often, maybe I have used 2-3 times which I don't even remember what I cooked with. It's nice to have another sage recipe here. I know where to check in case I get a big bag of sage next time!
