Creamy Tomato Fusilli with Veal

A simple sauce made with evaporated milk is much lower in fat than a traditional rose sauce but gives the sensation of a rich dish. Add an extra kick with 1/2 tsp (2 mL) hot pepper flakes if you like.

  • 1 lb (500 g) veal cutlet, cut into strips
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) freshly grated Parmesan cheese
