The asiago replaces Parmesan in the original recipe. You can use Parmesan if you want. Remember, it's important to use freshly grated not pre-grated cheese. From a local source. Low in fat! PS> I've also prepared this with boneless chicken breasts. If you want, the Italian seasoning can be replaced with one half teaspoon dried sage.

This made for a pretty tasty supper. I had 2 turkey cutlets, but had a lot of breading left over, so I pulled out a chicken breast to do as well, so h). ave that leftover (think I'll put it on a salad). It took quite a bit longer than 25 minutes to bake. Made with parmesan garlic potatoes and green beans. Thanks for posting. Made for Bargain Basement Tag game.
