I found the original version of this dish in a magazine and adjusted it to suit our family's tastes. Delicate fine-textured veal requires only a short cooking time, something that makes this simple entree even more attractive.

"I've used this recipe three times and it is amazingly good. I purchase veal already cut for scallopini and it's a very fast dinner. It takes longer to make the spaghetti than the main course. I highly recommend this recipe."
