    Chandra M's Note:

    A lighter version of the original. Be sure that the cutlets are even thickness so they cook evenly. This recipe does not call for cheese, which lets the wonderful fresh sage flavor stand through. Adapted from Cooks Illustrated.

      You will not miss the cheese in this Saltimbocca. What a meal we had tonight~ My DH loved this recipe. To him it was like going out for dinner at a fancy restrant. I had iffy about step 8 but it worked out well. The only change was I did not add the lemon to ours. Thanks for posting this recipe for us all to try.
