Veal Parmigiana Recipe – Happy Easter! Hopefully some of you were lucky enough to catch the Easter bunny and can be dining on some rabbit pappardelle soon (which reminds me I still have another rabbit sitting in the freezer). For me culinary wise comfort food sounded great for dinner thanks to the wonderful couple of inches of snow we managed to receive last night. Welcome first week of spring.
Penne pasta for those who do not know is cylinder shaped pasta that is usually a couple inches long and is either smooth or has ridges. Personally I like to buy the ridge kind. Penne also works great just tossed with some tomato sauce or pesto and cheese for a simple and quick meal. ( Read Article : How to cook veal )
