Turkey Turnovers

Aired January 29, 2009

4 turkey cutlets (1 pound total)
Salt and pepper
4 tablespoons soft herb cheese, such as Boursin
2 cups loosely packed spinach leaves
1 1/2 tablespoons EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon fennel seeds, chopped

Pound the turkey cutlets to a quarter-inch thick and season with salt and pepper.

Spoon a tablespoon of cheese in the center of each cutlet and top with the spinach. Fold the cutlets in half and close them with a toothpick.

In a large skillet, heat the EVOO over medium-high heat. Add the cutlets and cook until browned, about 2 minutes per side.

Add the tomatoes with their juice and the fennel seeds, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover and simmer until the turkey is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
