4 lb. Pork Loin
.25 oz. Italian Sausage
1 C Grape Tomatoes
1 Clove Garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
Salt and Pepper
2 T Pesto Sauce
1/4 C Shredded Italian Blend Cheese
1/4 C Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, sliced thin
1/4 C Pesto Sauce
-In saucepan over medium low heat cook sausage, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and garlic until sausage is fully cooked. Set aside and allow to cool before using in roast.
-Cut open pork loin down middle until about 1 inch from bottom, slowly slice sides, pulling toward you as you cut. Your goal is to cut open so roast is flat.
-Spread 2 T pesto on inside, top with shredded cheese, meat mixture, then mozzarella. Roll up tight, tie with baking twine.
-Coat outside of roast with remaining pesto. Place in 13X9 inch baking pan. Bake 450 degrees for 15 minutes, reduce temperature and bake 350 degrees for 1 hour 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160. Remove from baking pan and wrap in foil, allow to rest 15 minutes prior to slicing. EnjoY!
