Casseruole di Tacchino

(Turkey Casserole)


1-1 1/2 Lb Turkey Breast  - previously cooked
1/2  Cup  Rice - Arborio
1 Small Onion- yellow and chopped
2 Cloves Garlic - chopped
3 Lg. Tomatoes - Roma - chopped
1/2 Cup Celery - chopped very small
2 Med. Eggs
1/4 Cup Olive oil - Extra Virgin


Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Chop the turkey into pieces about 1/4 inch square, and put them in a bowl large enough to hold all of the ingredients.  Add all of the solid ingredients. Set aside

Put up 3 cups of water to boil.  As soon as it boils add the rice and turn down the heat to medium. Add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt and stir.  Continue to cook for about 15-18 minutes stirring often.  At the end of this time the rice should still be al dente, and all or most of the water should be absorbed by the rice.  If not, simply drain the rice and continue with the recipe.

As soon as the rice has cooled a bit, add it to the bowl with the turkey.  Add all of the other ingredients, and mix well.  Add a 1/2 cup of water and mix well.

Back for 35-40 minutes.  Remove from the oven and set aside for 15 minutes.
