Turkey Sausage and Pea Linguine


Serves 4

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound turkey sausage, casings removed
  • 1 pound fresh linguine
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 10 ounces fresh peas
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh tarragon
  • Parmesan cheese



Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil.

Add olive oil to a large skillet. Add turkey and cook at high heat while breaking up any large clumps.

Season with salt and pepper and continue cooking until lightly browned and cooked through.

Cook fresh pasta in boiling water for 2–3 minutes or until al dente. Reserving ¾ cup of the cooking water, drain the pasta. Add cooked pasta to the turkey along with the butter, 2/3 cup of the reserved cooking water, and peas. Combine all ingredients until heated through. If too thick, add a tablespoon at a time of the reserved cooking liquid.

Add the tarragon and grated fresh Parmesan right before serving.
