In completely un-food-related news, I am finally on season 5 of Glee! I had watched pretty much all of the other seasons, until now. The first episode in, it just FEELS different. I am sure it is related to the unfortunate passing of actor Cory Montieth, but it just feels…off. I am cringing, too, waiting for them to mention something about Finn’s character, but so far there has been radio silence.
Back to food-related topics, I made this turkey scaloppine parmesan recipe from Food.com and it is a Weight Watchers recipe! I googled what “scaloppine” and basically it’s Italian (duh) and refers to a thin cut of meat, usually veal, dredged and cooked with red or wine sauce. Well…there ya go. It was handy that I had some turkey breasts on hand, since they had been on sale at the grocery store. I have never cooked turkey breasts before but it was quite similar to cooking chicken. They were so thick that I cut them in half. Everything else is pretty self-explanatory. It was yummy!
Turkey Scaloppine Parmesan
-2 turkey cutlets
-1.5cu fat free marinara sauce
-2 slices fat free mozzarella cheese
-1⁄4cu grated parmesan cheese
-Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the cutlets and cook until browned, a few minutes per side, then transfer to a plate.
-Add the marinara sauce to the skillet and bring to a simmer, then add the cutlets and turn to coat with the sauce. Top each cutlet with 1 slice of the mozzarella and a spoonful of the sauce. Sprinkle with the Parmesan.
-Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the cheese melts and the cutlets are cooked through, about 2 minutes.
