Scaloppine al Marsala is one of the easiest meals to prepare, and yet so intimidating to some. Growing up my mom and nonna used to prepare them often. I remember entering the kitchen and loved being surrounded by the wonderful aroma of Marsala. We always had them with mashed potatoes, a must as a volcano was created for us children by placing some of the juice in the middle of the mashed potatoes. The tradition continues to this day with my son.
I just purchased veal cutlets from Pete at Personal Gourmet Foods and they are perfectly cut and pounded for me.
It only takes minutes to prepare the veal therefore I always prepare everything else first and give my undivided attention to the scaloppine.
Green salad with vinaigrette was our choice, however, any steamed or sautéed vegetables are a perfect side dish.
