Veal Saltimbocca Recipe Italian Recipes Dinner Ideas – Saltimbocca (pronounced saltimˈbokka; Italian for jumps in the mouth) is an Italian dish made of veal topped with prosciutto and sage; marinated in wine, oil depending on the region or one’s own taste. This dish is also occasionally topped with capers, lemon juice or both. Make sure you get to your local Butcher for GOOD Veal.

If you are in the Surprise AZ area you need to stop by Butcher Bob’s (some of the BEST Veal I have had).
