This is a quick and easy dish to make for any night of the week. Use the quick microwave white or seasoned rice to make this easy dish at a moment's notice.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound turkey cutlets or turkey scallopine, cut in thin strips or cubes
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced, about 1 cup
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried leaf basil
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 4 ounces shredded Parmesan cheese, about 1 cup
  • 3 to 4 cups cooked rice
  • 6 ounces baby spinach
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • ground paprika

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350°. Grease a shallow 2-quart baking dish.

Sprinkle turkey with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add turkey and cook, stirring, until cooked through. Remove to a plate and set aside.

Melt butter in the same skillet; add the green onions and garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir in the flour until well blended, then stir in basil and milk. Cook, stirring, until thickend. Add Parmesan cheese and continue cooking until cheese is melted. Pour the sauce into a bowl and set aside.

Terrific turkey leftover casserole, Member bjtco

The sauce has great flavor and will make the dish. Used leftover turkey and the rest took just a few minutes to whip together. Already planning to make this sauce again to go with wild grouse, shrimp, perfect foil for seafood and poultry. you gotta try this...
