We made this last night for dinner and it was wonderful! Beautiful flavours and much easier than I thought it would be. I think it would make a lovely dinner party dish once I perfect my string/tying technique! Next time I make it I will try some of the herb/garlic rub inside the roll as well. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
Pork Tenderloin "Rosa di Parma"
From EatingWell: March/April 2007
This is a traditional roast from the Italian province of Parma, often served for special family celebrations. (“Rosa di Parma” means it's stuffed with Parmigiano-Reggiano and prosciutto.) Typically made with beef, it is equally delicious and more economical made with pork tenderloin and ideal for entertaining parties of 8 to 10. Seek out true Italian Prosciutto di Parma and Parmigiano-Reggiano for this dish—even though they are more costly, the superior flavor is worth the expense.

I made this for my family tonight and my husband and I both loved it. Our kids weren't wild about it, but it is a little more of a grown up meal anyway. Instead of using proscuitto I used bacon because I had it on hand, but I don't think I would do that again. I prefer my bacon crisp. The tenderloin was super moist, flavourful, and delicious. Much easier than it looks, and super impressive to serve company, definitely making this again soon!
Made this for a bunch of friends the other night and it was way easier than I had anticipated (the double butterfly had me a little apprehensive) and so delicious. It came together pretty quickly since it cooks in the oven for only 15-20 minutes. As one of my friends said, "how can you not love stuffed meat?!"
This recipe is sooo good! My husband and I made it the other night and it came together quickly. I was slightly intimidated to do a double butterfly, having never done even a single butterfly before, but it was so easy! We served it with roasted brussels sprouts with balsamic and seared, pre-made polenta. This recipe is definitely impressive enough for company as well as easy enough for a weeknight meal for two! I will be making it again and again!
