I had these involtini at my aunt's son in Civitanova Marche, Italy. They are more on the small side, so try to get thin veal slices (1/5 inch or 5 mm thick) which are each about half the size of one slice of Mortadella, i.e. ca. 5-6 inches long and 4 inches wide. This seems a small main dish for 4 people, but the whole meal consisted of mixed antipasti, tortellini, then this, then salad, then fruit, then a walk ath the pier, then icecream. Italians prefer a variety of different small dishes to a single rich meal, so a main meal is not necessarily huge.
