How to make the Rolled Breast of Veal:

Rub the veal with one tablespoon of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Combine the sage leaves, chopped ham, peas, Parmigiano-Reggiano and the egg and spread the mixture over the veal.

Roll up the meat tightly and fasten with string. Place the meat in a baking dish, pour over it the lemon juice and remaining olive oil and cook in a preheated oven at 375 F for 1 hour or until tender at the pricking of a fork.
