50g pine nuts, lightly toasted in a dry skillet for 3 minutes
80ml olive oil, plus extra if needed
4 garlic cloves, peeled
3 tbsp grated Parmesan
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 (450g) turkey fillet
8 small red potatoes, halved
1) Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6. Coat a shallow roasting pan with cooking spray.

2) In a blender, combine the sage, pine nuts, olive oil, garlic, Parmesan, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Puree until smooth.

3) Season the turkey all over with salt and black pepper and transfer to the prepared pan. Spread pesto all over the top of the turkey. Arrange potatoes around the pan, spray with cooking spray and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
