Scaloppine al Limone (veal escalope with lemon)

This scaloppine al limone recipe is one of my favorite Italian home-cooked dishes. The lemon sauce is wonderfully tart and really accentuates the taste of the veal. It's a great feel-good dish that not only tastes great in summer because of its lightness, but also puts you in a good mood in colder weather.
