Rachael Ray's Braciole Recipe

I made this recipe for dinner this evening but I forgot to take a picture.
8 slices beef braciole, beef very thinly sliced
Coarse salt and black pepper
8 slices prosciutto di Parma
1 1/2 cups plain bread crumbs, eyeball it ( I used rice bread bread crumbs)
1/2 cup milk, eyeball it
2/3 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, 3 handfuls
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, a couple of handfuls, chopped
1 cup chopped arugula
Plain round toothpicks
2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
2 cloves garlic, cracked away from skin
2 tablespoons butter
12 crimini mushrooms, finely chopped
2 tablespoons flour ( I left the flour out)
1 cup dry white wine
1 cup beef broth
1 rounded tablespoon tomato paste
I also added 2 C tomato sauce
Season meat with salt and pepper. Top each slice of meat with a slice of prosciutto. In a medium bowl, moisten bread crumbs with milk. Add grated cheese, onion, parsley, arugula, salt and pepper to the crumbs and combine well. Spread a thin layer of stuffing down the center of each beef slice and roll tightly. Fasten rolled meat with plain toothpicks.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add oil to a hot pan along with garlic. Set meat into pan and brown on all sides, 6 minutes. Remove the meat from the pan. Add butter to the pan. Add mushrooms to the melted butter. Saute mushrooms 5 minutes. Add flour to the pan and cook 2 minutes. Whisk wine into the flour and mushrooms and scrape up pan drippings. Reduce wine 1 minute, then whisk in beef broth and tomato paste. Set meat back into sauce and reduce heat to medium low. Partially cover pan with a cover left ajar an inch. Simmer meat in sauce 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer beef rolls to a platter, removing toothpicks. Pour pan gravy down over the beef rolls and serve.
