Easy, Tasty Veal Osso Bucco

“Everyone has their own variation of this wonderful dish. Mine cuts out some of the effort and ingredients - but none of the flavour! I usually substitute the olive oil for oil spray. Bouquet garni is made by tying the thyme, bay leaf and parsley together (I usually just use an elastic band). I often serve this with gnocchi - but works well with mash, polenta, risotto or even pasta noodles. Enjoy”
