Stuffed Veal Rolls - Tomaxelle

This recipe has come from Wish You Were Here culinary and adventure tours who organise cooking holidays and tours in Italy, France and the USA.

Imagine cooking with your very own Italian grandma who is excited to share her family recipes with you. Imagine spending a morning at a famous spa where you relax in an ancient grotto followed by a massage. Imagine cruising down the Italian Riviera on a Vespa.

Wish You Were Here tours are about discovering these wonderful locations in a personal way. Locals and friends help open the door to the best foods, places and experiences because they have spent a lifetime getting to know and appreciate the place they call home. One of the things that makes the tours special is that things are kept informal and friendly and the tours are limited to small groups so you will feel like you are traveling with friends.

To find out all about these wonderfould tours have a look at


2 oz dried porcini mushrooms (soaked, drained & chopped)
6 oz ground veal
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup white wine
2 to 3 tablespoons bread crumbs
3 tablespoons pine nuts
3 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
2 tablespoons fresh marjoram
1 tablespoon Italian parsley
2 large eggs, beaten
Salt and pepper to taste
8 thin slices of veal
1 to 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce


  • Sauté the ground veal, mushrooms and garlic in a large skillet for a few minutes, just until the veal is light brown.
  • Drain the liquid and add the wine. Cook for another minute or so.
  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl and let cook for a few minutes.
  • Then add the bread crumbs, pine nuts, cheese, marjoram, parsley, eggs. salt, and pepper. Combine the ingredients thoroughly with your hands or a wooden spoon.
  • Lay out the veal slices and put a little cylinder of filling in the middle of each cutlet. Then flatten the filling so that it covers almost the entire surface of the veal slice. Roll the slice and secure it with string or toothpick.
  • Add the tomato sauce to the same skillet, heat it slightly, then add the veal rolls. Cook gently until the veal is cooked through, usually about 10 minutes.
