Saltimbocca translates as "jump into your mouth." The addition of ready-to-cook bagged sugar snap peas and cooked orzo makes it a complete meal. Pass warmed Italian bread at the table.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter
2 pounds presliced turkey breast fillets, cubed
1 1/2 teaspoons dried sage, divided
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 (8-ounce) bags sugar snap peas
4 ounces ham, chopped
3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 cups hot cooked orzo
1 garlic clove, crushed

Instructions

  1. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey, sage and salt. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until done. Add the snap peas, ham, broth and cream; cook 8 minutes or until peas are bright green and sauce is thickened.
  2. Serve over orzo.
