Add pepper too 10, brown them for 3 minutes on one side, then turn them and brown them for 1 minute on the other side 11. Sweat with white wine 12 and let it evaporate.

Add the flour 13 and water 14 too. Lower the temperature, cover with the lid 15 and continue cooking for 6 minutes.

Once cooked, remove the herb bunch 16. The rolls will be tender and wrapped in a creamy sauce 17. Serve the ham and cheese-filled veal rolls hot 18.
