How to Make PASTA, TURKEY & SQUASH STIR-FRY

Step-by-Step

  • 1Start 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.
  • 2In 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.
  • 3Add 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.
  • 4Meanwhile, cook the fusilli until just tender. Drain well. Transfer the turkey mixture to a large bowl, add the fusilli, and toss to combine.
