Veal Osso Bucca in Citrus Sauce with Noodles by Peggy Perry

Veal Osso Bucca in Citrus Sauce with Noodles by Peggy Perry
This lighter style Osso Bucca has been a family favourite for years. You can make it 2 or 3 days ahead and it freezes well. Leftover veal is delicious cut up and served with some sautéed vegetables on rice or pasta. I usually double or triple this recipe.
