Step 1Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.
Step 2Add a tablespoon of oil and the garlic to the skillet. Cook, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Step 3Stir in tomatoes and their juices, along with Italian seasoning.
Step 4Bring the mixture in skillet to a boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer gently. Stir occasionally, until sauce has thickened but is still chunky, about 20 minutes.
Step 5Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste and keep warm.
Step 6While sauce simmers, pat turkey cutlets dry with a paper towel and season with a pinch of salt.
Step 7Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Step 8Add the turkey cutlets to the skillet and cook for 6 minutes on one side. Flip the cutlets and cook for an additional 3 minutes, or until an internal temperature reaches 165°F, measured by a meat thermometer.
Step 9Spoon the warm tomato sauce over each cutlet. Excess sauce can be served with pasta as a side dish.
Step 10Sprinkle with mozzarella. Cover skillet and cook until cheese melts, about 3 minutes.
Step 11Garnish with basil.
