  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over low heat. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the spinach and saute, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes. Let cool.
  2. Combine the ricotta, egg white, orange zest, pepper and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Stir in the spinach mixture and mix well.
  3. Place the turkey between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper or foil and pound to a 2 cm thickness. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Spread the ricotta mixture on the turkey and roll up from one long side. Tie the breast to secure it, then place seam-side-down in a small baking dish.
  4. Brush with the remaining oil and sprinkle with the rosemary and salt to taste. Roast for 1 hour or until browned and cooked through. Serve in slices.
