How lettuce rolls are made

After washing the lettuce leaves, blanch them in a saucepan with boiling and salted water for about a minute, then drain them, taking care not to break them, and lay them on a dish towel before drying them.

In a bowl, mix the ricotta with the shredded olives, the chopped ham, the chopped basil leaves, the egg, salt and pepper.

Place a spoonful of the mixture in the center of each leaf, then close each leaf forming a bundle and tie it with a kitchen net.

Place the lettuce bundles in a previously prepared pan lined with parchment paper, drizzle with oil and wine, sprinkle each roll with a little breadcrumbs pre-mixed with the Parmesan cheese.

Put in the oven at a temperature of 180 ° C and cook for about 15 minutes, until the dumplings are golden and the classic sauce is formed.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool, then sprinkle each bundle with the sauce obtained before serving.
