Veal Marsala with Wine & Mushrooms

Veal Marsala with Wine & Mushrooms

This is one of favourite recipes that my mom will often make when I come home to visit.  This succulent dish can be served with whole grain spaghetti and two sides of vegetables like steamed green beans and salad. Veal is an excellent protein and an exceptional source of iron, vitamin B12 and vitamin A.
