RASPBERRY VINAIGRETTE

Heat cranberry juice to a boil, stir in sugar and cornstarch and cook to thicken. Cool. Add raspberry vinegar and frozen raspberries. Cover and hold for service.

GENERAL PREP

In a preheated 375 degree F oven, toast hazelnuts for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool. Coarsely chop. Cover and reserve for service.

Prepare spinach by tearing into bite sized pieces. Cover and refrigerate for service.

PARMESAN SHELLS

Prepare Parmesan shell by spraying an 8-inch nonstick saute pan with vegetable oil spray. Heat pan over medium heat.

For each shell, add 1/3 cup coarsely grated Parmesan to the bottom of the saute pan, distributing the cheese evenly across the pan. Allow the cheese to bubble for about 30 seconds before adding an additional 1/4 cup of finely grated Parmesan.

When the cheese starts to turn golden brown, remove from the pan and place over a mold or a small stainless steel bowl. Allow to cool.

SERVICE

Toss spinach, turkey and hazelnuts in a bowl.

Divide salad among the cooled Parmesan shells. Serve the dressing on the side. Serve immediately.
