Author's Comments

Veal and Peppers was a favorite at our house. It is a very versitle dish and can be served as a luncheon or dinner entree. I have had veal and pepper "heroes" or subs if you are not from New York City, and they are sold every where in NYC as a luncheon favorite. The is extremely tasty and the long cooking times tend to meld the flavors of all the ingredients.
