Sounds easy and very good, but I haven't tried it yet. It comes from Joan Brett, Boulder, CO, Bon Appétit | August 1999 .
- 1 lb penne
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 2 large garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 teaspoon dry crushed red pepper
- 1 1⁄4 lbs ground turkey
- 1 lb wild mushroom, sliced (such as crimini, stemmed shiitake, portobello, dark gills scraped away)
- 5 green onions, chopped
- 1 1⁄3 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 2 1⁄2 cups parmesan cheese, grated
- 1⁄2 cup dry white wine
- Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Drain very well. Set pasta aside.
- Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, thyme, garlic and crushed red pepper; sauté 2 minutes. Add ground turkey to pot. Sauté turkey until cooked through, breaking up turkey with back of fork, about 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer turkey mixture to large bowl.
- Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in same pot over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and green onions and sauté until mushrooms are tender and brown, about 6 minutes. Add turkey mixture, broth, 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese, wine and pasta. Cook until sauce thickens enough to coat pasta, tossing often, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve, passing remaining Parmesan cheese separately.
