 NOTES : From Pam:  Here’s how I did it:I followed the ingredients to a T!
  After I mixed the meat ingredients, I patted the meat on a sheet of wax
 paper to about 10 X 15".  Sprinkled the filling ingredients over, and then
 tightly rolled the meat, jelly roll fashion, sealing the sides and edge.
  Popped it into a regular loaf pan and baked according to the recipe.  It was
 good hot, and it really did made fabulous sandwiches--on fresh French bread
 slathered with Dijonaisse.
 
 *You may want to decrease the salt--with the Proscuitto, it was a bit salty.
