Grilled Turkey With Tomato Sauce / Tarragon Sauce And Noodly Noodles.

Woke up this morning and felt like eating turkey with tomato sauce.  I had something in mind but I wanted to share with you something different. After looking through "Biggest Cookbook In The Universe" (the internet), fell on Elise's May 22, 2007 recipe on "Simply Recipes" upon which I chose to base my today's recipe with a few twists of my own....hope you don't mind Elise?
You will need:
Serves 4-6
-  1 kg Breast of Turkey which is such an easy piece of meat to let your imagination wander.
-  1 Tbsp. of dried tarragon.
-  3 Tbsp. of olive oil to saute the garlic.
-  ¼ cup of olive oil to marinate the turkey pieces.
-  5 cloves of garlic run through the garlic press.
-  500 gr packed grated tomatoes in their juices.
-  2 tsp. balsamic vinegar.
-  Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste for the marinade.
-  50 gr good quality fresh butter.
-  Juice of half a lemon.
-  250 gr of Noodly Noodles. What are Noodly Noodles? These are noodles made with eggs and milk, dried and cut up in small pieces with a twist. Noodly is word which does not exist (I think). I made it up because it sounds nice.  In Greece we call them Χυλοπύτες......Like the ones Greek girls or boys eat when they are dumped and ignored by the other....(Greek joke).

-  Marinate the turkey pieces in oil, salt and pepper for a couple of hours before grilling.

-  Before grilling the turkey, prepare your noodles as follows:
  • Boil 1 liter of water per 100 gr of noodles.  When water boils add the 3 tsp. salt.
  • Throw in your noodles for about 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Check for doneness "al dente" as always with pasta and drain.
  • Melt butter and squeeze in the juice of half a lemon, mix.
  • Throw in your noodles stir and mix, cover to keep warm.

-  Prepare your tomato sauce as follows:
  • Add oil to a hot skillet and saute the garlic till you obtain that beautiful aroma.
  • Add your grated tomato and juices, stir and mix.
  • Add your dried tarragon, balsamic vinegar, salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Bring to a boil then simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off heat, cover to keep warm. set aside till you grill the turkey.
-  Heat your stove-top grill and start grilling your turkey pieces both sides to well done. Brush with marinating oil to keep moist.

-  When turkey is ready, serve in the middle of the plate, with butter-lemon noodles around.
-  Top turkey with the sauce.

-  Sprinkle some dried tarragon on the noodles for decoration.
