"YUM! I was looking for a recipe to use some turkey tenderloins. I'm glad I tried this one. I only used 2 tbsp of olive oil to brown the tenderloins whole, then sliced them before adding to the sauce. I only had 6 slices of Swiss cheese but that was enough to compliment the white wine and keep the fat down. I will definitely make this again!"

"Delicious. I replaced the spinach with fresh (or frozen) whole green beans and also used 1 1/4 cup of chicken broth, omitted the white wine and used 1 cup of swiss cheese instead of 3 cups. I kept the turkey breast tenderloins whole because they dried out too much when cut into thin strips. Also seasoned the turkey with paprika in addition to salt and pepper."
