How to make saltimbocca alla romana
We use thin slices of veal, if too thick, beat them with a meat tenderizer between two sheets of parchment paper. Place a half slice of ham on each slice of veal and place a sage leaf on the ham; we skewer meat, ham and sage with a toothpick.
In a dish we put a little flour and pass the slices in the flour only from the underside (the one without ham).
Put a large knob of butter in a pan, put the slices as soon as melted and cook for a few moments underneath, when they have a nice golden color underneath, blend with less than half a glass of white wine
and let it evaporate, cover with a lid and finish cooking, in total they will cook 2-3 minutes. Put the slices in a serving dish and add the cream that has been created in the pan on the saltimbocca alla romana.
