Horseradish gives special texture and tang to this hot glazed veal. Thin veal scaloppini take only 5 minutes to cook. Fettuccini cooked with sweet red bell pepper completes the meal.

Horseradish can enliven many dishes from scrambled eggs to salad dressings. Combined with orange marmalade it gives a sweet and spicy flavor to this dish.

Boneless, skinless chicken breast can be used instead of veal. Thin chicken cutlets are available in the market, or pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet or bottom of a heavy skillet to about 1/4-inch thick. Cook the chicken to 165 degrees.

This meal contains 543 calories per serving with 17 percent of calories from fat.

Helpful Hint

Dry fettuccini can be used instead of fresh. Cook according to package instructions.

    Dinner in Minutes: Filipino adobo chicken

    Mild, tangy Chicken Adobo is one of the national dishes of the Philippines. The meat stews in a vinegar sauce cooked slowly over low heat. When University of Miami author and creative writing professor Evelina Galang asked me “Why aren’t there more Filipino restaurants,” I decided to create this quick dinner. This shortened version has the flavors without the hours.

    This is a quick take on a popular Chinese classic. It’s made with sautéed pork tenderloin and shredded cabbage, which cook in just a few minutes in a hot wok. I have used whole wheat tortillas as the wrap.

    Dinner in minutes: Shepherd’s Pie

    Shepherd’s Pie is a traditional pub dish. Some claim it as British, others as Irish. In either case, it’s a quick dish to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It’s made with cubes of preferably lamb but also beef, veal or pork, and vegetables and a tomato-based sauce. Top it with mashed potatoes and cheese.
