2 cups onion coarsely chopped
1 cup carrot coarsely chopped
3 to 4 cloves garlic minced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 10-ounce bag fresh spinach leaves washed, drained & stems removed
1 14-1/2-ounce can diced tomatoes undrained
1 19-ounce can cannellini beans drained and rinsed

Place cutlets on cutting board and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each, salt and pepper. Slice cutlets into 1/2-inch strips. In 12-inch or larger non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, saute turkey strips in 1/2 tablespoon oil, 4 to 5 minutes or until no longer pink (165 degrees F.). Remove from skillet.
