Veal, Mushroom, Lagostino In Sherry Cream Sauce

My riff on an Italian dish, but the original is done with brandy and shrimp. I switched a lot of things up: sherry, gnocchi, lagostino and spices, but my results were tasty. I also used gnocchi instead of the original angel hair pasta. The roll call has tender veal, lagostino, mushrooms, gnocchi, spinach, onions and garlic, all in a sherry cream sauce. I hope you like it.

16 ounces veal, 1/4 inch thick
1 cup flour
1/4 cup rice flour
