Simple to make and comes out very nice. It's a little plain, but that was ok. We served with roasted broccoli. Very easy for a weeknight. Thanks!

I made this with the baked rigatoni what an awesome meal. I actually substitued chicken instead of veal. Very good.

The veal was delicious I had run out of plain breadcrumbs and used italien but the end run was just as good I will certainly use this recipe again.
