- Preheat oven to 400°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine red onion, red potatoes, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1 tablespoon of the minced garlic; season with salt and pepper and toss well to coat vegetables.
- Place on greased baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes, or until vegetables are slightly tender.
- Meanwhile, in a medium size mixing bowl, add the turkey, remaining 1 tablespoon of the minced garlic, and 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil. Toss well to evenly coat the turkey with the garlic and oil; set aside.
- Once the potatoes and onions are slightly tender, carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven and add the black olives and tomatoes, gently stirring to combine vegetables and return to the oven and continue to roast.
- Heat remaining olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and sauté for 8–12 minutes or until the turkey is cooked through.
- Toss the turkey and vegetables in a large bowl with the fresh thyme and Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
