The word saltimbocca in this classic Italian recipe means "jumps in your mouth," . Now does that sound like a meal you could pass up? From Bon Appetit.

These really did jump in our mouths. My husband loves veal and this recipe was delicious. The marsala wine does not come across too heavy in this recipe. The addition of Herbs de Provence and cornmeal put a different twist on the veal & the prosciutto complements the whole mixture.
Love the earthy Herbes de Provence flavors here!
