Introduction

This is an old recipe inherited by mom's grandma. I use to make this to to astonish and to delight my friends. And everybody loves this dish! It's a second course but if you eat them with some lovely green salad, it can be a nourishing main course. PS: i don't have vegetarian friends, actually! This recipe is intended for 4 people (2 involtini each).
