Simplicity is tasty perfection. Because I'm on a vice-like budget, I was forced to substitute the prosciutto for bacon. I chopped it finely and spread it across the breasts and then topped them with thick mozzarella slices. The burgundy wine red sauce is where it's at! I also find that it takes a little extra something to get the desired crisp from the breading, so I shredded some pecorino cheese into the breadcrumb mix. It gives off a delectable aroma while baking.
