Sicilian Meat Roll with Mozzarella and Prosciutto

Kelly Williams


A very impressive and flavorful meat roll good enough for company! Like an up-scale meatloaf roll and one of my very favorites! Easy to make, too. And don't worry that the prosciutto is too expensive. 6 paper-thin slices don't cost much and are well worth it! You can sub ham if desired, though. Enjoy!
