  • 300 g Turkey breast
  • 4 piece Sage leaves
  • 4 piece Parma ham slices
  • 1 piece Red onion
  • 0,5 piece Zucchini green
  • 0,5 piece Zucchini yellow
  • 1 piece Clove of garlic
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 1 pack Uncle Ben's Express Rice Mediterranean
  • Herbs for garnish
  • Also: 4 toothpicks


  • Cut the turkey breast into four approx. 1 cm thick slices. Top with a leaf of sage and then with a slice of Parma ham. Fasten everything with a toothpick each.
  • Peel the onion and cut into wide slices. Wash the zucchini and cut into wide slices. Peel and finely chop the garlic.
  • Heat the oil in a large pan and place the turkey breast slices in with the coated side first. Then add zucchini, onion and garlic and fry everything over medium heat for about 6 minutes. Turn everything once and season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat and serve the rice according to the instructions on the packet. Serve the saltimbocca with the vegetables. Garnish everything with fresh herbs like basil and marjoram.
  • Tip 5: The saltimbocca and the vegetables can also be extinguished with a dry white wine, so you get a slightly fruity sauce.
