Turkey Roll-Ups With Polenta

Prep time: 2 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

  • 1 lb turkey cutlets (in the refrigerated meat section)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 slices (about 2 oz) prosciutto or thin-sliced ham
  • 4 slices part-skim mozzarella
  • 4 tsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 16-oz tube polenta
  • 1 large tomato, diced

1. Season cutlets with salt and pepper. Top each with a slice of prosciutto and cheese. Starting at narrowest end, roll up cutlets.

2. Pour bread crumbs into a shallow dish. Dredge roll-ups in crumbs, then place on a microwavable dish, seam side down. Drizzle with olive oil. Cook at 100 percent power for 5 minutes. (If microwave doesn't have a turntable, rotate dish halfway through cooking time.) Roll-ups are done when turkey is no longer pink and cheese is melted.

3. Meanwhile, cut polenta into chunks and add to a saucepan with 2 tablespoons hot water. Cook over medium heat, stirring to break up polenta, for about 2 minutes. Top with tomato.
