Pork with Mozzarella and Prosciutto

This was a nice, quick & easy recipe. It's a variation of the classic Italian "Saltimbocca". This goes definitely on the list of recipes to be repeated.

2 boneless pork chops, 1/2 inch thick
garlic powder
4-6 ounces mozzarella, thinly sliced
salt, pepper
4 slices prosciutto
dried crushed sage
2-3 tbsp butter

Trim excess fat from the meat. Then pound to 1/4 inch thick (or thinner if desired). Cut meat in half. Sprinkle meat with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and sage to taste. Place mozzarella on top of meat slices. Cover with prosciutto, letting it fall into folds. Melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until the meat is tender and the cheese has melted. Serve with a side of pasta or rice.
