- 4 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 fresh, chopped red or green peperoncino (optional)
- 6 small pieces of Parmigiano or Romano cheese
- salt and black pepper
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 can chopped tomatoes
- Spread the mixture of parsley and garlic and one piece of cheese over the top of each pork skin.
- Grind black pepper over each skin.
- Roll skins like a log and tie from one end to the other with string.
- In a skillet, add the olive oil.
- Place the tied pigskin braciole and sauté’ until golden.
- Add a can of chopped tomatoes and let them simmer in the sauce for approximately an hour.
- Once done, remove from sauce.
