I have always loved Italian food. When I was a little kid my mom used to make these amazing dinners with tortellini in pesto sauce and chicken or eggplant Parmesan, almost every week. I loved it so much that when I wanted a snack, I'd go into the fridge, find the leftovers and put some tortellini on a plate. When I became a vegetarian, chicken Parmesan was no longer an option, but then I realized that I could do the same thing with this dish that I've done with countless others. I used to make Chick-n parmesan with pieces of seitan, until I discovered the Quorn cutlets, which look and taste a lot like chicken breasts, and I personally think it works much better this way.
