I credit my wife with this delicious wild turkey recipe. With a little ingenuity and only a few things from the pantry, she made a mouth-watering, plate emptying, fight for the last piece dinner, that we all enjoyed!
Ingredients (serves 2)
1 Wild turkey breast
1/2 cup of basil pesto
1-1 1/2cup of mozzarella cheese
2 tsp of parsley flakes
2 Tbls of olive oil
14 oz can of petite diced tomatoes
1 Box of Linguini Noodles
Cut turkey breasts perpendicular to grain into +/- 1/2″ thick sections. Spread 1/4 cup of basil pesto evenly across the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish. Place turkey sections on top of pesto base and cover with another 1/4 cup of pesto.
Cover and bake at 375°F for 25-30 min.
After 30 min, remove from oven and cover turkey sections with mozzarella cheese and sprinkle parsley flakes over cheese. Return to oven for 5 min. Then turn oven to broil for an additional 5 min.
Serve over Linguini noodles tossed in 2 Tbls of olive oil and a layer of tomatoes.
