Recipe by Elisabetta47
In Italy, turkey is often prepared as you would with a chicken breast fillet. Since it's so low in fat, it dries out very quickly. This fast cooking method and creamy sauce produces a nice and easy little dinner. Come to think of it, bet the sauce would be nice on left-over roast turkey. Can't remember where this came from, so let's pretend I made it up. Update 4/14/10: Just made the sauce with low-fat cream cheese and it was every bit as good as with regular, so I'm changing the recipe. Who needs the extra calories? I recommend doubling the sauce, at least the cream cheese and milk. And it's lovely on chicken fillets as well.

My husband really enjoyed this meal. He thought the sauce was really tasty. I thought it needed something...but couldn't determine exactly what. Perhaps a little garlic and/or parmesan cheese would give it a little more flavor. Made for Spring PAC 2010 http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
