Ingredients

1/4 c
chicken broth
3 Tbsp
soy sauce
2 Tbsp
maple syrup
2 Tbsp
cider vinegar
2 tsp
cornstarch
1/2 tsp
ground ginger
1/2 tsp
red pepper flakes
2 Tbsp
coarsely chopped pecans
1 Tbsp
canola oil
1/2 lb
turkey cutlets, cut into 1/4" wide strips
2 c
butternut squash, cut in chunks 2x1/4"
3 clove
garlic, minced
1
leek, halved lengthwise & cut into 1" pieces
1
rib celery, cut into 2" julienne
2 tsp
chopped fresh parsley
8 oz
long fusilli pasta

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Start by heating a large pot of water to boiling for the pasta. In a small bowl, combine the broth, soy sauce, maple syrup, vinegar, cornstarch, ginger, & pepper flakes & stir to blend. Set aside.
Place the pecans in a large nonstick skillet over low heat and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe the skillet with paper towels.
2
In the same skillet, heat the oil until hot over medium high heat. Add the turkey and cook, stirring constantly, until the turkey is lightly browned, about 3 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the turkey to the plate with the pecans.
3
Add the squash to the pan and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned and almost tender, about 4 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the garlic, leek, and celery and cook, stirring frequently, until leek & celery are crisp tender, about 4 minutes. Stir the broth mixture again and add to the pan. Stir in the pecans and turkey and cook, stirring constantly, until the turkey is cooked through, about 1 minute longer. Stir in the parsley.
4
Meanwhile, cook the fusilli until just tender. Drain well. Transfer the turkey mixture to a large bowl, add the fusilli, and toss to combine.
