I love the title! Mon's food the best!!

I used to take veal when I was with the airline. The veal in S'pore Airlines is really good. Reminds me of good-old-days!

I'm pretty sure this is my mpther's recipe. I took it for granted growing up - veal was so much more inexpensive. You showcased the dish beautifully. It looks luscious.

Mom knows best :) I love veal parmigiana, but usually just use chicken for my parmigiana since it's cheaper and easier to get usually. This looks like pure Italian comfort. Thanks for sharing!
