Product Types:


9 ounces fresh angel-hair pasta, cooked according to package directions
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 carrot, finely diced
2 tablespoons water optional
1 to 1 1/2 pound turkey breast diced into 1/2 inch pieces
1/8 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups small broccoli florets
3/4 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup heavy cream
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, optional


Heat oil in large non-stick skillet. Add onion and carrot. Saute over medium heat until onion is soft but not brown, about 2 minutes. Add water if they seem dry. Add diced turkey to pan and saute until no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with thyme, basil, oregano and fresh ground black pepper. Add broccoli and cover. Cook over low heat 1 minute. Meanwhile combine half-and-half cream in large glass measuring cup. Heat in microwave until hot to the touch, about 1 1/2 minutes. Stir into turkey and vegetables. Cook, uncovered, over medium high heat until cream has reduced and thickened and broccoli is crisp tender. Serve over pasta with parmesan cheese, if desired.
