I have never been a fan of Roulade, or it's Italian cousin, Braciole. Either eating it or making it. I find it tedious to make, and the result of making it has always been dry and tasteless and filled with things that you would never normally eat anyway. Not pleasant. However, it was put upon me this evening to make a Roulade. I have one recipe that I keep in my back pocket, but I didn't have any capicola or provolone, and I didn't want to take all day to make it. I found this recipe, and was pleased at how quick it could be thrown together. Something happened when I served it tonight. There was conversations. There were smiling faces. There were clean plates. There was talk about making it again. These were tender, flavorful, and just right. There were a few adjustments to the recipe, and it still turned out wonderful. Regular onions worked just fine. Lambrusco instead of dry red wine, and served on a bed of mashed potatoes worked just fine. Especially with the broth drizzled on it. Would definitely make again.
