To make 8 servings of these Mediterranean turkey roll-ups, soak sun-dried tomatoes in ½ cup of reduced-sodium chicken broth for 10 minutes or until softened.


Combine the tomatoes and soaking broth in a bowl with spinach, grated Cabot Lite50 Sharp Cheddar cheese, pine nuts and dried oregano.


Lay turkey cutlets on a work surface. Place a scant ½ cup of spinach mixture in the center of each cutlet. Tightly roll cutlets up around filling and secure with toothpicks. Place some flour in a shallow dish and roll each cutlet in flour until well coated.


Set a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and minced garlic. When oil is hot, add cutlets and cook, turning, until browned on all sides. Transfer to paper towels to drain.


Add the remaining 1 cup of chicken broth, lemon juice, white wine, capers and dried rosemary to the skillet. Increase heat to high and cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 3 to 5 minutes.


Return cutlets to skillet, reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 6 minutes longer, turning occasionally or until heated through. Remove toothpicks from cutlets and serve with sauce over barley, brown rice or whole-wheat or spinach linguine.
