Turkey Scaloppini with Pesto Cream Sauce

If you can’t find turkey scaloppini, get your butcher to cut thin crosswise slices from a turkey breast for you. Otherwise, substitute chicken or veal scaloppini. (The scaloppini should be 1/4 inch thick.) If you can, use homemade pesto which will be lower in calories and fat than the store-bought variety.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS
1. To make the cream sauce, combine the pesto, sour cream and Parmesan in a small bowl. Set aside.

2. Dust the turkey with the flour.

3. Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking oil, add the vegetable oil and heat to medium-high. Cook the scaloppini for 2 minutes per side, or until no longer pink at the center. Serve with a dollop of pesto cream sauce on top.
