  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the green beans:

  • 1/2 pound green beansends trimmed
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Use a paper towel to pat the turkey breast completely dry.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine oil, salt, pepper paprika, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning, until combined. Rub the mixture all over the turkey breast and set it aside on a plate for 15 minutes at room temperature. It’s ideal to bring the seasoned turkey to room temperature to achieve more tender and juicier meat.
  4. Place the turkey breast on the centre of a large half sheet baking pan and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. While the turkey is cooking, prepare the veggies by tossing the ingredients together in separate mixing bowls.
    • For the butternut squash: In a large mixing bowl, toss together butternut squash, oil, balsamic vinegar, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
    • For the Brussels sprouts: In a medium mixing bowl, toss together sprouts, oil, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
    • For the green beans: In a medium mixing bowl, toss together green beans, oil, salt and pepper.
  6. Once the turkey has been roasted for 30 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven and carefully arrange the seasoned vegetables around the turkey breast in a single layer. Be careful as the pan will be very hot.
  7. Return the baking sheet to the oven and continue baking for another 30-35 minutes until the butternut squash is fork tender and the turkey breast is fully through. The internal temperature for the turkey should reach at least 160F as read on a meat thermometer.
  8. Let the turkey breast sit for 10-20 minutes before slicing. Serve with the vegetables.
