Lovely tender veal!! from Cooking Light mag.

Top Review by Michele7

I know this recipe was from Cooking Light but I used 1 tablespoon of olive oil instead of 1 teaspoon. Maybe someone else could have made it work but I was uncomfortable with so little oil vs 1 pound of veal. The flavor is very good but I will double the sauce the next time I make this. I also added garlic; can't cook without it! Everyone liked this. The meal was ready in no time at all. Thanks for the recipe.
