Quick Weeknight Meal - Veal with Lemon

Once again, I forgot to take pictures of this delicious dish - and C and I inhaled it so fast there was none remaining for a post-meal shot. Jim and the other kiddos didn't like it as much - but I think this one is a keeper.

Anyway, it was late one night last week before I had a chance to go grocery shopping, and I needed a recipe that I could bring home and cook quickly, so I turned to my trusty 30 Minute Meals 2. This recipe looked like one that could be made in as little as 15 minutes, so I hastily added the ingredients to my shopping list and did a quick shopping trip.

When I got home, I was able to whip the veal dish up quickly, along with the sauteed spinach to serve as a bed for the veal and lemon sauce. I also cooked up some whole grain spaghetti as a side dish, which I simply tossed with olive oil, chicken broth, fresh garlic, fresh chopped parsley, and salt and pepper. It was not only quick but really ono!

Anyway, I couldn't find this recipe anywhere online, sorry! It was quite a simple dish, really, with olive oil, butter, flour, and chicken broth whipped together and used to quickly sautee the veal. Then lemon, zest, and parsley are added at the end. How simple can you get? The sauce really complemented my freshly sauteed baby spinach. Loved it!
