Steel-cut oats make a crisp and nutty crust for turkey cutlets. Peppery arugula pesto brings together the multigrain pasta, beans, and vegetables. Recipe from Executive Chef Russell Kool of Nike World Headquarters, Beaverton, OR



    Step 1

    Cook the Barilla® pasta for half the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking. Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

    Step 2

    Toss the beans with the paprika and 3/4 cup of the oil. Roast in a 400-degree oven for 10 minutes, until golden. Set aside to cool.

    Step 3

    Working in batches in a food processor, make the pesto by pureeing the arugula, walnuts, garlic, lemon juice, 1 1/2 cups of the cheese, and 1 1/2 cups of the oil.

    Step 4

    Whisk together the eggs and water to make an eggwash. Mix together the cooked oats and rosemary. Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large pan and caramelize the sprouts and onions together.

    Step 5

    For each serving, to order: Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a pan. Season 1 cutlet with salt and pepper, dredge in flour, and dredge in eggwash. Pack one side of the cutlet with 1 Tbsp. of the oats. Cook the cutlet on both sides, or until golden brown and cooked through. Reserve on a plate.

    Step 6

    Heat the same pan and add 1/4 cup sprouts and onion. Reheat 1 1/2 cups pasta in simmering water. Drain and add to the pan with the sprouts. Add 1/2 cup pesto, 1/2 of a tomato, and about 1 1/2 Tbsp. beans. Add pasta water if needed, tossing everything together until warm. Plate the pasta, garnish with 1 1/2 tsp. Parmesan and set the cutlet on the side.
