Veal Shanks (ossobuco Alla Milanese)


Categories: Dairy-free, Kids (see note) This is one of the few Italian dishes where the main course is served together with a first course. Traditionally the first course would be risotto alla milanese (saffron risotto), but it is also served with risotto bianco (risotto with butter and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese), pureed potatoes, or buttered vegetables. See variations in the notes below.
