Veal Pizzaiola is an easy make traditional Italian dish consisting of veal topped with a tomato and garlic sauce.
PIzziaola is a meal that I grew eating as a kid. My mum would serve it with mashed potatoes and green vegetables.It was a family favourite then, and it is still a winner today.
My version is pretty similar to Mum's one, though I prefer to serve it without the mashed potato - my favourite sides are sweet potato fries and steamed broccoli.
You can also make this meal with sirloin steak or chicken.
This is the latest in a series of winter warmer recipes, most of which are old-school family favourites (thanks Mum). You may want to check out Red Lentil & Quinoa Soup , Chicken & Vegetable Soup and Vegetable & Lentil Soup.
