Method

  • Place each Turkey breast (half pieces) between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound each piece to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Sprinkle both sides of turkey with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper.
  • Mix cheese, Olives, chopped carrot in a small bowl. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons cheese mixture over each breast piece. Flatten with hand. Roll up turkey like a jelly-roll, starting with narrow end. Secure at 1-inch intervals with twine. Set aside.
  • Place vegetable strips in a steamer. Add cranberry juice and let it simmer it for 3 minutes. Drizzle 2 teaspoons of oil; toss gently so that the strips are coated evenly. Cover and keep them warm.
  • Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high flame. Place turkey in a pan, and cook for 6 minutes, so that it becomes brown on all sides. Add wine and water. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 6 minutes or until turkey is done.
  • Remove turkey from pan, and let stand for 2 minutes. Remove twine, and slice each roulade crosswise into 5 equal pieces.
  • Place about 5 strips of each vegetable and a cup of the pasta mixture on each of 4 plates; top each with 5 pieces roulade. Serve immediately.
  • Melt cheese with fresh cream in 1:2 ratio, add white wine and chopped parsely. Season with salt and pepper powder for sauce to top it with.
