The Ingredients: Turkey Parmesan with NoodlesServes 4 - 6, prep time 1.5 hours
6 turkey cutlets
¾ cup bread crumbs (old French bread ground up in the food processor>
¾ cup Parmesan
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
Slices of mozzarella (enough to top each cutlet)
2 tbsp Olive Oil
2 large cooking onions (thinly sliced)
1 can diced tomatoes (28 oz)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
Salt & pepper
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp dried parsley
½ tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp chili flakes
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Dried or homemade Italian pasta
Makes 4 – 6 servings (depending on size of cutlets)Tomato Sauce
Preparation time: 1.5 hours
Saute onions in olive oil at med / high heat. Stir frequently for approx 10 min. Add garlic, tomatoes and balsamic vinegar to onions. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to med / low. Add spices and simmer for approx 1 hour until sauce is thick. Add salt & pepper to taste.
Turkey cutlets, depending on their thickness, will take approx 7 – 10 min once breadcrumbs and egg are prepped hence you will need to time your pasta accordingly.
Turn broiler on. Heat a pan with olive oil over med / high heat until up to temp. On a plate, combine bread crumbs, shredded parmesan, salt & pepper. In a bowl, beat the egg. Dip turkey cutlets one at a time into the egg and directly into the breading. Place in frying pan and continue process. Note you may need to do several batches as all cutlets won’t fit into most frying pans. Sear each cutlet 30 seconds on each side until golden brown. Remove and place on cookie sheet.
Once all cutlets are complete, cover with thin slices of mozzarella cheese and place under broiler until cheese is bubbly. Note that depending on the thickness of your cutlets, you will want to ensure they are fully cooked. This can be done by searing them longer on each side ensuring not to burn the bread crumbs or placing lower in the oven under the broiler for an extended period of time.
