I love any kind of parmigiana dish, veal, chicken, whatever! But I must say this stuff is amazing!

For the tomato sauce, I use my own homemade tomato sauce, which I have also posted the recipe for here on JAP. So if you're using the homemade sauce or a commercial spaghetti sauce skip the sauce steps and omit those ingredients. Enjoy!
