We found this recipe in the great Italian Gourmet Cooking magazine that’s out on the newsstands now!
4 bone-in, thick-cut pork chops (center cut rib chops)
8 sage leaves, cut into ribbons
8 thin slices mozzarella
4 slices prosciutto
freshly cracked black pepper
Slice the 3-4 large beefsteak tomatoes into 1/2 in slices
Slice the 3-4 large fresh mozzarella balls into 1/2 inch slices as well
Layer the mozzarella on top of the tomato slices
Layer with fresh basil leaves
Sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil and season with salt & pepper
We had some leftover mozzarella, and tomatoes that wasn’t enough to do anything else with, so we created a salami salad!
Straight from the most recent Bon Appetit! We used Trader Joes out of the bag whole wheat dough… probably should have rolled it a bit thinner, but it’s so sticky!
