Braciole di Manzo
Lay a slice of prosciutto and a piece of cheese on each one. Sprinkle with a few pine nuts, currants and garlic.
Roll up the slices, tucking in the ends. Tie the rolls at 1-inch intervals with kitchen string. In a large skillet, warm the olive oil over medium heat.
Add the beef rolls and cook, turning as needed, until browned on all sides, about 15 minutes.
Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes longer. Add the wine and cook until most of the liquid evaporates, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer, turning the rolls occasionally, until the beef is tender when pierced with a knife, about 2 hours.
Check from time to time to see if the sauce is becoming too dry; add a little water if needed. Uncover, scatter the parsley and basil evenly over the rolls, and cook for 2 minutes longer. Transfer to warmed, individual plates, spooning the sauce over the top, and serve at once.
