I am planning an Italian dinner and searched the net for a braciole that was a little different. This was certainly it. It came from food network. I won't be making it until mid September, but wanted it in my cookbook and shopping list. As an update.. I did make this in September and it was wonderful and I'll make it many times. It was tested by my Italian family and they loved it.

This makes for a deliciously different meal to be serving family and friends. The aroma alone makes for a five! This was far easier to make than I had anticipated, a meal as good to look at as it is to eat. Thank you CoolMonday for sharing this keeper ... great photo!
