Before you start
If possible, choose «milk-fed veal» which is much younger and more tender than the grain-fed one.
The sauce may be prepared in advance.
Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.
- Boil the pattypan squash in a pot of salted boiling water, about 4 min, until al dente. Drain them in a colander, then season with salt and pepper. Keep the squash warm in the oven.
- In a shallow dish, combine the mustard, lemon juice, and olive oil. If the veal slices are too thick, gently flatten them to about 3 mm, using a meat pounder. Dip the escalopes in the mustard mixture or brush them with it on both sides.
- Heat a ridged grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook the veal escalopes in batches about 1 min per side, or until cooked through.
- Season the veal with salt and serve it on the warmed dishes with the squash and the Roasted Garlic and Basil Sauce.
