1 pounds pork tenderloin

Salt and pepper to taste

 

4 slices prosciutto

8 ounces baby spinach

4 ounces asiago or gruyere, grated

Olive oil for searing

cup dry marsala wine

cup heavy cream

1 tablespoon demi-glace, optional

Butterfly tenderloin along the long edge. Roll out and pound to -inch thick. Season well with salt and pepper. Lay prosciutto side by side to cover tenderloin.

Blanch spinach in boiling water for 10-15 seconds; drain, squeeze out excess moisture and chop. Spread spinach on prosciutto; top with grated cheese. Gently roll tenderloin up along long edge; tie at 1-inch intervals with kitchen twine. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat a thin coating of olive oil in an ovenproof pan and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer pan to oven and roast meat for about 30 minutes or until it reaches internal temperature of about 160 degrees. Remove to cutting board, tent with foil and let rest while you make the sauce.
