Veal Rolls with Feta Cheese, Garlic and Olives Recipe:

This recipe is not so budgety, prices for veal in US are somewhat high, but I like veal meat: it is lean and tender.

To reduce cost a bit, another part of veal can be substituted for scallopini here, pieces should be sliced thin, beef will do too but may need to be cooked longer to be tender.

Use any kind of white wine you like, it can be also served later with the course.
