Veal Pizzaiola

Serves 2 hungry boyfriends in 

This is one of my boyfriend's favorite meals

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 sweet onion, cut in half lengthwise and thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 red pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1/2 lb mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
2 28 ounce cans diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
4 veal cutlets
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded


1.  Heat oil in a large skillet (12 in) over medium heat.  Add onions and peppers and saute for 5 minutes, until onions are translucent and peppers are soft.  Add mushrooms and saute another 5 minutes, until moisture absorbed.  Add garlic and saute for 1 minute until fragrant.  Stir in tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil then lower to a simmer.  Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Pour 1 cup of sauce into a baking dish, coating the bottom.  Set baking dish aside.  Pat veal with paper towel.  Season both sides of veal with salt and pepper.  Add the veal to the skillet of simmering sauce, cover, and cook 2 minutes per side.  Add veal to the sauce-coated baking dish, pour over the rest of the sauce.  Add mozzarella on top.  Cook in the oven for 20 minutes until the cheese is melted.

3.  Serve your boyfriend. Place a few pieces of the veal onto a plate and let your boyfriend know his Veal Pizzaiola is served.  It's so good it can be served as a stand-alone meal.
