Delicious! My prosciutto was so thin it didn't overpower the turkey at all (and I used two slices per "package"). It was crunchy and entirely nice with and without the capers. I used a mini food processor to chop and combine the capers and garlic, which I would not recommend; I should have hand-chopped because by the time the garlic was tiny, the capers were a little too processed. Served with creamed spinach.

While this cooked up moist and tasty, the turkey meat got completely overshadowed by the prosicutto. I really love prosciutto, but turkey is expensive here and I'd have liked to know I was eating it. The recipe is super, super simple and as there is no cheese in there to escape, it works a treat. I will use this idea again, but would use chicken or veal if I had that on hand. The "sauce" is yummy, but is more of a relish or topping.
