Return to boiling and cook oncovered to al dente stage (about 3 minutes if fresh pasta, 7 minutes if dry); do not overcook. during this cooking time, use a wooden or spagheti spoon to left fettucini may be an old wives' tale, but this procedure seems to enhance the pasta's texture.) Then immediately drain in a colander and stop its cooking by running cold water over strands (if you used dry pasta, first rinse with hot water to wash off starch); after it has cooled thoroughly, about 2 to 3 minutes, pour a liberal amount of vegetable oil in your hands and toss fettucini. set aside still in the colander.

In a shallow pan (cake and pie pans work well) combine the bread crumbs, parsley, olive oil, white pepper, onion and garlic;, mix well. In a separate pan beat the eggs well, then beat in the remaining 4 teaspoons Parmesan. Soak the veal in the egg mixture for at least 5 minutes, being sure to coat it thoroughly. Meanwhile, heat ¼ inch oil to about 400F in a large skillett. Then, just before frying, dredge veal in the bread crumbs, coating well and pressing the crumbs in with your hands; shake off any excess. Fry the veal in the hot oil until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Do not crowd. (Change the oil mid-way through frying if the crumbs in the bottom start to burn.) Remove veal to a large platter and set aside. Reheat the cheese sauce over medium-high heat, whisking frequently. (NOTE: If butter starts separating from the sauce, whisk in about 1 tablespoon cream or water.) Add the fettucini and loss until tho9roughly coated and heated through, about 1 minute.
