I have used Thyme rather than Sage in the past and it was just as good. This is an easy recipe with AMAZING results. Its perfect for company and quite impressive. You can use ground Turkey rather than Veal if you like. I don't know where I got this from. The cooking & prep times are just guesses. Serve this as a main dish with pasta, risotto, rice or potatoes as a side or part of a larger Italian meal after the Pasta course with a steamed vegetable on the side. Make sure you have some bread for cleaning that plate!
