10 minutes is no way near enough grilling time - after 20 minutes it was still half-cooked, so we had to finish it off on the griddle. Didn't have any pepperonata antipasto but was fine without. Served with a dollop of light mayo which made it less dry. Really tasty - shame it took so long!

Not bad as an after work meal. A bit salty and dry though.

I used chicken instead of turkey and it took much longer to cook. Also I couldn't find pepperonata antipasto but made do without. it tasted ok but I think for the effort I could make a better and similar dish instead of this.
