This IS the traditional recipe. This is exactly how I make it. The only change I make, sometimes, is to use marsala rather than white wine. This is a great dish no matter what wine you use. Easy enough for every day and impressive enough for company.
Delicious! This tastes just like the Veal Saltimbocca dish I had at a restaurant in Vicenza. It works great with chicken breasts as well.
This was so delicious. I love the traditional Italian recipes, a few simple ingredients and fantastic flavor. I have a sage plant outside my kitchen window, when I notice that it needs a haircut, I know it's time to make saltimbocca again. I had to use chicken instead of veal because of availability, but it's delicious either way. Thanks for posting!!
This was my first time trying to make this dish (though I used chicken) and it was very good. The saltimbocca that I have had has always included spinach and cheese so I sauteed some spinach with a clove of garlic and put that on top of the prosciutto and covered with fontina to melt. I also upped the wine to have enough sauce which was a rather unattractive olive green color, but VERY tasty. Thanks, ChrissyG for giving me the confidence to try this dish - I will be making it again!
