"Even though my husband and I spend a lot of time at our swim club, I like to cook a hot meal every night. I look for recipes that are light, easy to fix, and have a lot of flavor. This one meets all those criteria. We're fond of veal, but this recipe works just as well with chicken thighs." -CL Reader
