Veal with Prosciutto and Mozzarella

We found some small packages of veal slices in the 2 for 1 bin in Carrefour and of course I couldn’t resist.  They looked pretty good!

I thought whatever I did with the veal, I wanted roasted peppers with it and because it’s so easy to get them from Picard, it was a done deal.

This was rapidly turning into an Italian-like meal, as I decided on tagliatelle with pesto.

On a roll, I ran to the store picked up some prosciutto and mozzarella for the veal.

Sometimes I feel a little ridiculous taking all these pictures, going “teacher, teacher, what about this one?”   It’s Roger’s fault.

Veal with Prosciutto and Mozzarella

4 thin slices of veal

1 tbsp butter

8 whole basil leaves

4 slices of prosciutto

1 small mozzarella, cut into 4 slices

Quickly brown the veal slices in the butter then lay them in a baking dish.   Put 2 basil leaves on each veal slice, add 1 slice of prosciutto and 1 slice of mozzarella.   Bake in a 400 degree oven for 5-8 minutes.  Serve with pesto tagliatelle and roasted peppers.

Very, very easy.   Very, very satisfying.   Now grab yourself a large glass of the red and enjoy!

    This looks great!!! Your veal reminds me of the Roman dish “Saltimbocca alla Romana”!

    One of my husband favorite veal dishes is Veal Saltimbocca. Substituting basil and adding cheese sounds good.

  6. I’m glad you did take all those pictures – they’re wonderful, and a very tasty finished dish too.
