Rotelle with Smoked Turkey

Rotelle with Smoked Turkey

 


Ingredients:  
6 ounces rotelle
2 cups small broccoli florets
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
hot sauce
1 cup smoked turkey, skin removed, diced
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, drained, diced
2/3 cup chicken stock or canned broth
Romano cheese, freshly grated
  Directions Cook broccoli florets in large pot of boiling salted water, until crisp-tender (about 2 minutes); don't overcook. Reserving water in pot, use a slotted spoon to transfer broccoli to bowl of ice water. Drain broccoli and pat dry; return water to boil. Add rotelle and cook according to package directions. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking, then drain thoroughly. You may wish to undercook the pasta slightly. Melt butter with olive oil in heavy large skillet over low heat. Add garlic and a shot of hot sauce and saute until garlic is tender, about 3 minutes. Add turkey and saute until heated through, about 4 minutes. Mix broccoli, pasta, roasted peppers and stock into turkey mixture. Increase heat to high and cook until pasta has absorbed most of the liquid, about 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Divide pasta between two bowls and top with Romano cheese. Servings 2
