Top Review by wendylou

Dancer - your were a standing ovation at my dinner party. The saltimboccas was wonderful. The only thing I did was to take the roasted red peppers from 1Steve's recipe # 18483 and add it on top of the prosciutto along with a slice of mozzarella cheese.The fresh sage gave it a nice flavour.This is a keeper thanks again.
