I really enjoyed this veal and peppers recipe. It was really easy to prep and well worth the wait of the cooking time. The sauce is very flavorful. I easily halved the recipe to accommodate 1 lb of veal. Since I was halving the ingredients, I just used one red bell pepper instead of half a red and half a green. Also, I used 8 oz of fresh baby bella mushrooms which were fantastic in this dish. I used some red pepper flakes as suggested and served over linguine. I'm copying this recipe down. Thanks!

i made this for a special dinner for my best friend and my husband who both LOVE veal. (I do not eat it). It made my house smell wonderful and I did taste the sauce which was fantastic. I would love to try it with sweet italian sausage next time. They both LOVE IT and said it was better than any other. Thanks!

Excellent! Brought back great memories of the early 1960's in Albany, NY. Spaghetti with veal and peppers was the 99 cent Monday night special at a local restaurant. In those days, veal cost less than chicken. The browned veal flavor was beautiful with the wine enhanced tomato sauce. The onions and peppers added layers of flavor. I made the recipe as directed except for subbing sauteed fresh mushrooms. I served the veal over thin spaghetti. Thanks BoxO'Wine for good memories and great food.
