In large pot of boiling water, cook fettuccine according to package directions; drain well.

Meanwhile, sprinkle veal with 1/2 tsp (2 mL) of the salt and pepper.

In large, shallow pot, heat half of oil over high heat; brown veal in batches. Transfer to plate. Reduce heat to medium; add remaining oil. Cook garlic, carrots, broccoli and red pepper, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until tender-crisp. Add wine and chicken stock; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until liquid is reduced by half. Return veal and any accumulated juices to pan; pour in cream and remaining salt. Bring to boil; simmer for 2 minutes.
