 sliced stuffed pork loin for Easter in roaster

 Yields: 10 servings
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 40 min

• Boneless pork loin (3-5 pounds)
• 7½ tablespoons olive oil
• 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
• 1 medium onion (finely diced)
• 1 cup sun dried tomatoes
• 5 ounces frozen chopped spinach (thawed)
• 6 ounces Gruyere cheese (shredded)
• 6 ounces Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
• 1 teaspoon fresh parsley (chopped)
• 1½ pound small potatoes
• 1 pound peeled baby carrots
• 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
• 2 cups chicken broth



You will also need butcher's twine.

1. Preheat oven to 450º F. Be sure you are using a loin and not a pork tenderloin. These two cuts of meat cook differently. Trim off as much of the layer of fat as you can. To butterfly the loin, use a sharp knife to make a horizontal cut about one-third of the way up from the bottom of the loin. (Don't slice all the way through.) Open the two sides.
