Fitastic November 30, 2013


  • 8 ounce turkey breast slices
  • 1/2 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
  • Spices of your choice (try salt,
  • pepper and Italian seasoning,
  • or salt and cayenne pepper)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • nonstick cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350°F. Place a large piece of plastic wrap on your counter, lay the turkey slices on it, an inch apart, and top with another piece of plastic wrap. Using your palm, gently flatten each slice until it’s 1/4-1/8-inch thick. In a small bowl, mix ricotta and spices; spread Parmesan onto a large plate. Remove top layer of plastic wrap and divide ricotta mixture among Turkey slices, spooning it onto one end of each piece. Roll turkey slice around cheese mixture, then coat in Parmesan before placing seam side down in a 2 quart glass baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until meat is cooked through.
