21 #MealPrep Ideas That Are Anything but Boring


Definition: Saltimbocca

Popular in Italy and especially Rome, saltimbocca is a dish made traditionally with veal cutlets but sometimes with chicken or pork. The meat is usually pounded thin and wrapped in or topped by prosciutto and sage leaves.

Often cooked in white wine and butter or oil, the veal is then seasoned with its own sauce and sometimes capers. Saltimbocca means "jumps in the mouth" in Italian.
