Roast Turkey:

1. Heat oven to 375 degree F. Rub turkey on all sides with lemon juice and olive oil. Rub lemon pepper and Italian seasoning over turkey.

2. Place in a roasting pan, breast-side up, and roast in oven for 2 to 2-1/4 hours or until internal temperature reaches 165 degree F on an instant-read thermometer. Let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
