This delicious and beautiful dish was featured in Maine Life & Style Magazine.

6 boneless Lamb Loins, about 6-8 ounces each
12 slices domestic Prosciutto
12 Sage leaves
1 750 ml bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon
1 pint prepared Veal Stock
3 sprigs Rosemary
6 Shallots, sliced thinly
1 Cup Beluga Lentils
1 Sweet Onion, such as Vidalia, peeled and diced 1/4 inch
2 Carrots, peeled and diced 1/4 inch
2 ribs Celery, diced 1/4 inch
3 Cups Chicken Stock
2 Parsnips, peeled and diced 1/4 inch
1 small Rutabaga, Peeled and Diced 1/4 inch
1 Turnip, peeled and diced 1/4 inch
1 small Celeriac, peeled and diced 1/4 inch
1 Sweet Potato, peeled and diced 1/4 inch
A.P. Flour
Salt and fresh ground Black Pepper

Be sure that the Lamb Loins are de-fatted and have no silver skin. Lay two slices of Prosciutto side by side, place Lamb Loin across the slices, then place a sage leaf on two sides of the loin. Roll the loin up and set aside in the refrigerator.
Cook the sliced Shallots in a 2 quart pan over low heat with 1 Tbsp oil. When Shallots turn translucent add Rosemary sprigs and Cabernet. Reduce till 1/2 cup liquid remains. Add the prepared Veal Stock, season to taste and reserve.
Cook 1/2 of the Onion, the Celery and 1/2 of the carrots together with 1 Tbsp oil in a 4 quart pan. Add the Lentils and Chicken Stock and cook till the lentils are cooked through but not mushy, you may need to drain them as you would pasta. Reserve.
Toss the remaining vegetables with salt, pepper and oil. Roast in a 400 F oven till browned and fully cooked.
Dredge the wrapped loins in flour and sear evenly on all four sides over medium heat. This will result in a medium rare piece of lamb. Slice and plate.
