Stuffed

Pork tenderloin Rosa di Parma is a traditional dish from the province of Parma. This tenderloin is simply stuffed with Parmigiano-Reggiano and prosciutto, Normally this dish is made with beef but works just as well with pork or even chicken.

Parma is in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. They are famously known for their production of Prosciutto di Parma and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. When making this recipe try to use these two imported products. It’s more expensive but well worth the extra cost.

Rosa di Parma can be served plain with roasted potatoes and steamed vegetables or with a nice creamy sauce. To get the best results from this dish just pan fry it first to seal in the juices then roast it to perfection. Enjoy!
