Web20.Chickens's picture
  Fusilli/Penne / elbow macaroni 12 Ounce
  Mushrooms 10 Ounce (3 Cup)
  Olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Garlic cloves 4 Small, minced
  Roasted red peppers/Roasted pimientos 12 Ounce (2 Cup)
  Grated parmesan cheese/Mild fresh goat's cheese 4 Ounce
  Ground chicken/Ground turkey 1 1⁄4 Pound
  Salt To Taste
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium heat. Add the pasta and cook until it is tender but still firm to the bite, about 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, wipe the mushrooms clean with a damp paper towel, trim 1/4 inch off the bottom of the stems, then cut the mushrooms into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and saute just to coat them with the oil, about 1 minute. Add the garlic, cover, and simmer until the mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes.
4. While the mushrooms are cooking, puree the roasted peppers with the cheese in a blender or food processor. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.
5. When the mushrooms are tender, add the turkey to the skillet and saute over medium heat, uncovered, stirring constantly to break up the clumps, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
6. Drain the pasta and return it to the cooking pot, off the heat. Add the mushroom and turkey mixture to the pasta and toss until well combined. Adjust the seasoning. When serving, top each portion of pasta with some of the roasted pepper and cheese mixture.
