Turkey Rolls in Red Wine Tomato Sauce

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 363


4 ounces ground veal or turkey
2 ounces Italian bacon (pancetta), finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 clove garlic (small), finely chopped
1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 pounds thin-sliced turkeys cutlets, cut into 12 pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup dry red wine
2 cups fresh tomatoes peeled, seeded, and chopped, or drained and chopped canned tomatoes
pinch of crushed red pepper


1 In a large bowl, combine the veal, pancetta, parsley, garlic, bread crumbs, and salt and pepper to taste. Shape the mixture into 12 small sausage shapes about 3 inches long. Place one sausage at the end of a turkey cutlet. Roll up the meat to enclose the sausage. With a toothpick, pin the roll closed in the center, parallel to the roll. Repeat with the remaining sausages and cutlets.

2 In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the rolls and brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. Add the wine and bring it to a simmer. Cook 1 minute, turning the rolls.

3 Add the tomatoes, salt to taste, and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Reduce the heat to low. Partially cover the pan. Cook, adding a little warm water as needed to prevent the sauce from becoming too dry, for 20 minutes or until the rolls are tender when pierced with a fork.

4 Transfer the rolls to a platter. Remove the toothpicks and spoon the sauce over the top. Serve hot.
