  1. In a sauté pan on medium high heat, brown veal in butter and oil, seasoning with salt and pepper. Brown on all sides, then turn pieces upright to hold in marrow.
  2. Add carrot, celery, onion, garlic, rosemary and sage. Cover pot and simmer 10 minutes.
  3. Blend pasta sauce with wine and stir into veal.
  4. Add water or stock and simmer over low heat, adding small amounts of water if necessary to prevent drying. Simmer until meat is tender, about 2 hours.
  5. Serve over cooked rice or mashed potatoes if desired.
