Nutritional values

The combination of veal, vegetables and cheese provides the body with plenty of vitamin B2, B6, and the micronutrient zinc. It is particularly beneficial for pregnant women, nursing mothers, or women in menopause.

If you prefer poultry, you can also prepare this dish with chicken or turkey breast. The meat is just as tender and lean.
