    Turkey Pesto Roll-Ups

    • Makes: 2 servings
    • Serving Size: 1/2 roll-up
    • Preparation Time: 10 minutes


    1 large whole wheat tortilla (10-inch diameter)
    1 Tbsp. commercially prepared pesto
    6 rehydrated sun-dried tomatoes, thinly sliced (not oil packed)
    4 oz. no-added-salt turkey breast or leftover roasted turkey, thinly sliced
    1/3 cup baby spinach leaves


    1. Place the tortilla on a work surface. Spread the pesto on the tortilla.
    2. Sprinkle the sun-dried tomatoes over the pesto. Layer the turkey slices over the tomatoes and top with the spinach leaves. For easy rolling, leave about 2 inches around the edge of the tortilla uncovered.
