Sally's Recipe of the Week: Sage Pesto Turkey Tenderlion

posted by Sally -

Here is what you will need:
2 turkey tenderloins (2 come in the package)
1 bunch parsley
1 package of sage *
3 TBS grated Parmesan cheese
4 cloves of garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
1/3 cup pine nuts
olive oil
salt and pepper

*This recipe is for sage fans, the next time I make this I will use much less sage, it was just too much for me but I do know people who like it with all the sage.  I would use about 1/3 the sage I used and replace that with more parsley and cheese.


Toast the pine nuts in a non oiled skillet.  Want them to be light to medium brown.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a shallow roasting pan with cooking spray or an oven safe pan.

When cooled put nuts in food processor along with the package of sage, the same amount of parsley, cheese, garlic , 1/3 cup olive oil, add the oil a little at a time. Also include 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.

Pulse until smooth.

Dry off turkey with paper towels. 

Season your turkey with salt and pepper.

Pile the pesto on top of each tenderloin and slide into the oven. 

Bake for 30 minutes or until the center temperature is 160 degrees. Let rest for 10 minutes then slice.

Enjoy with some simple sides.
