Saltimbocca alla Romana. Tonight is family night.

The weather is finally cooling off, and fall is in the air. Love this time of the year. Not too cold, if such a thing exists in Phoenix, not too hot, and we did have months of it.

The dish that I have prepared tonight is typical of Rome. Saltimbocca means “ leap into your mouth”. 

First of all if you are not in love with this dish you soon will be.

Not only is super fast to prepare since it only takes 15 minutes from beginning to end, but it does not require many ingredients.

Mashed potatoes is a must.
