Try this indulgent stuffed beef tenderloin for special occasions. Mark Boughton/styling by: Teresa Blackburn PrintEmail We added spinach to this traditional Italian dish, which is served in Italy for special occasions. Served with its pan juices, it pairs perfectly with potatoes. Proscuitto is a seasoned salt-cured ham served very thinly sliced. Although it has a distinct flavor, you can use any thinly sliced ham in its place.
