    CHRISSYG's Note:

    There are a few Veal Saltimbocca recipes here, but I hadn't seen the very traditional, very simple one. This is all about showcasing a few fresh, flavorful ingredients for a superb dish. This is very nice served over some wilted spinach, and if you're not a veal person, you can easily substitute pounded chicken breast.

      This IS the traditional recipe. This is exactly how I make it. The only change I make, sometimes, is to use marsala rather than white wine. This is a great dish no matter what wine you use. Easy enough for every day and impressive enough for company.

      Delicious! This tastes just like the Veal Saltimbocca dish I had at a restaurant in Vicenza. It works great with chicken breasts as well.

      This was so delicious. I love the traditional Italian recipes, a few simple ingredients and fantastic flavor. I have a sage plant outside my kitchen window, when I notice that it needs a haircut, I know it's time to make saltimbocca again. I had to use chicken instead of veal because of availability, but it's delicious either way. Thanks for posting!!
