Saltimbocca is easily one of my favourite Roman style dishes. The Italian nonna who taught me to make it served hers with sautéed green beans and tomatoes- I’ve been making it the same way ever since. Traditionally made with veal cutlets, I’ve made mine with pork fillet but you could also use chicken (gasp!).

 

Thinly slice 12 even slices from the pork fillet diagonally. Lay each slice flat on a chopping board and gently bash with a meat hammer or rolling pin until approximately 5mm in thickness. Top each slice with a sage leaf, season with salt and black pepper and wrap with a slice of prosciutto.
Place the flour in a wide dish and dredge each slice until completely coated, patting off any excess.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and add 1 tbsp oil. Cook the slices in batches using extra oil as needed, ensuring not to overcrowd the pan, for 2 minutes on each side or until the pork has cooked through and the prosciutto becomes crispy. Set aside and keep warm.
Fry the garlic in the pan for 1-2 minutes before adding the cherry tomatoes. Cook for a further 2 minutes, add the French beans and white wine and cook for 4-5 minutes until the beans are tender.
Serve slices of the saltimbocca with the green beans and tuck in.
