Rub turkey breast with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place turkey breast, breast side up, on top of vegetables. Float foil over top of turkey and roast 1 hour. Remove foil and roast an additional 1 hour or until food thermometer inserted in thickest part of breast registers 165 degrees F. Baste turkey and vegetables frequently with pan juices.
