Pork, Mozzarella and Pesto Parcels
Writing about web page http://www.sainsbury.co.uk/food/foodandfeatures/sainsburysmagazine_november/recipeidea/takeonemakeone.htm
I found this recipe in the Sainsburys magazine. Its always interesting to take a recipe and make it my own.
Simply, take a thin fillet of pork and flatten it a little more with a rolling pin. Spread a layer of pesto onto the fillet and then add a slice or two of mozzarella. Roll it up (not that easy since the pesto and mozarella tends to ooze out if you put too much in as I did). Keep it together with a cocktail stick or two, season it and fry for about 6 minutes on each side in olive oil, adding white wine to the pan for a few minutes. I found it needed more cooking than suggested.
Serve over a bed of warmed cannelloni beans added to a blend of olive oil, lemon juice/garlic and parsley. I added a red pepper for a bit of colour to the mixture.
Serve with rocket leaves. The pork, pesto and mozzarella is a great combination, and the beans and salad complement it well, balancing its richness.
