To prepare the Tuscan Roast Turkey:

2. Top the grilled French bread with the warm turkey.

3. Fold the fresh basil pesto into the Pomodoro Crudo Sauce and diagonally pour the sauce over the turkey, then sprinkle ¾ ounce of the ricotta salata over the sauce.

4. Arrange the Roasted Rainbow Carrots and Fingerling Potatoes neatly on the plate.

5. Drizzle with the balsamic glaze and garnish with remaining ricotta salata.







1. Combine all the ingredients and place them in a sauté pan over low heat until warm. Serve with Tuscan Roast Turkey.













1. Combine the potatoes and vegetables in a large stainless steel bowl and sprinkle with the seasonings. Toss with a rubber spatula to blend.

2. Drizzle the canola oil into the bowl and blend well.

3. In a 375°F oven, heat a cast iron skillet or roasting pan. When the pan is hot, add the bowl’s contents and immediately return the pan to the hot oven.

4. Roast for about 45 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked, firm and golden brown.
