Turkey Marsala

 Turkey Marsala
"This recipe originally called for beef, but I substituted turkey to make it healthier," writes Deborah Williams from Peoria, Arizona. It's easy to prepare, but the rich sauce makes it seem like you spent all day in the kitchen. I serve this with a baked sweet potato and a green vegetable."
