Involtini means “rolled,” and you’ll find rolled and stuffed dishes like these throughout northern Italy. There, cooks use tougher cuts of beef, simmering them in sauce until tender; I’ve adapted this technique for the grill using fast-cooking chicken cutlets to simplify things and make cleanup easier. The crunchy and cheesy bites that ooze out of the sides are irresistible. Most kids go crazy for this, but it has sophisticated flavors adults will enjoy, too.
