Sounds easy and very good, but I haven't tried it yet. It comes from Joan Brett, Boulder, CO, Bon Appétit | August 1999 .

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
