In a bowl, mix sautéed vegetables with Worcestershire sauce, fresh basil and Providence Oka cheese.

Remove excess fat from the veal breast. Spread mushroom and cheese stuffing on the meat. Gently roll it up and tie with thin string to secure.

In large saucepan or casserole, brown stuffed veal in butter over high heat on each side. When veal is nicely browned, stir in wine and beef broth and bring to boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Cook for 90 minutes or until meat is tender. Add water as needed. Remove veal from saucepan and slice.

Arrange slices in a serving platter. Serve with cooking juices.
