Turkey Scallopini with Marsala Sauce

My family requests this entree at least once a month. The slightly sweet Marsala sauce is yummy over the turkey slices and hot cooked noodles. —Briana Knight, Ferndale, Washington

    Just tried this tonight with thin-sliced chicken cutlets over brown rice and it was absolutely delicious. I’m not an accomplished cook and even I pulled this off fairly easily. Didn’t see mushrooms in the recipe, but I added a tablespoon of porcini mushroom powder when mixing in the butter (actually I used Smart Balance) and it turned out great. Few ingredients, easy to prepare, uses only one pan, and tastes yummy. This one’s a keeper for sure!

    Made the cutlets as directed, sliced them and mixed in with the mushrooms. Served it with steamed sweet potato with herbed butter and steamed crumb topped brussels sprouts. It was a most delicious dinner!!! The cutlets were easy to prepare and, while I did cut back on the Marsala a bit, the taste of the wine carried well into the dish.

    Great recipe! I used chicken in place of the turkey, because I had it on hand - overall - delicious!

    Made it for my wife on Valentines Day. Instant classy success. Recommend using fresh pasta in lieu of dried. Serve with a small side salad and some crusty bread.It is her new all time favorite

    Very tasty! I didn't have any Marsala wine on hand, so I used chicken broth for a quick substitute. It was quite good, and I'll be making this again!
