Turkey Tenderloin with Sage Pesto

 I'm always looking for something "different" to make for dinners.  When I saw this one I thought it was a winner!  I love that you can make a nice turkey dinner at any time of the year.  I love that you don't have to wait for a holiday - this great meal could be your week night special.  I know I will be looking at this for something different in our weekly/monthly meals.  I may even try to "change it up" with chicken instead of turkey tenderloins.

  • 1 1/2 lbs small red potatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves (peeled)
  • 3 tbsp of toasted pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup fresh sage leaves
  • 3 tbsp fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 tsp pepper, divided
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 oz turkey tenderloin
  • 2/3 cup 2% milk
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter (or margarine)

Place potatoes in the 3 qt Casserole of the Stack Cooker with 1 cup water.  Slice 2 garlic cloves in half and put into casserole with potatoes.  Cover and microwave for 8 minutes on high.

As the potatoes cook, put 1 clove garlic and pine nuts into base of Smooth Chopper and process until finely chopped.  Add sage leaves, Parmesan, 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper, process until combined.  Add olive oil and process until completely combined.

Place turkey in the Colander and spread 2 tbsp of pesto on top of tenderloin.  Remove Stack Cooker from microwave, carefully lift cover and stack Colander on top of  Casserole.   Cover and microwave for another 9 minutes.  When cooking is complete, allow turkey to rest, covered, for 5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees and juices run clear.

While turkey rests, put milk and butter into 2 cup micro pitcher and microwave on high for 1 minute.  Drain potatoes, leaving them in the casserole.  Pour heated milk and butter mixture over potatoes, and carefully mash..
