1 lb (454 g) Dry linguini pasta
1 tbsp (15 mL) Vegetable oil
1 Onion, chopped
2 Cloves garlic, minced
2 cups (500 mL) Sliced cremini mushrooms
½ Red pepper, chopped
1 lb (454 g) Maple Leaf Prime® Extra Lean Ground Turkey
¼ cup (60 mL) Flour
¼ cup (60 mL) White wine

1 tsp (5 mL) Chopped fresh thyme
1 cup (250 mL) Frozen peas
1 tbsp (15 mL) Chopped fresh parsley (optional)
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup (80 mL) Freshly grated Parmesan cheese


MELT 3 tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs. Cook, stirring constantly for 3-4 minutes or until breadcrumbs are golden brown and toasted. Remove from the pan and set aside.
