I loved how quick and easy this recipe was to make. I served it over fettucine. Next time I would increase the sauce ingredients to make enough for the pasta. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

I really enjoyed this veal scaloppine. It was simple to make and was great with a salad, risotto, and garlic bread. Thanks Lynn for another keeper. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

This made for a quick and easy dinner. Made as written I found the flavor to be a little blander then other Chicken Marsala recipes. I would add garlic and maybe a little oregano next time. Made for PRMRT
