If you’re bored with turkey sandwiches by Boxing Day, there are other ways to make a second meal with your leftovers…

Ingredients

Wholewheat Pasta, dry

225 g, tagliatelle

Olive Oil

1 teaspoons

Onion(s)

1 medium, finely chopped

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Thyme, Fresh

6 sprig(s), leaves picked and chopped

Half Fat Crème Frâiche

150 g

Lemon(s)

½ zest(s) of 1

Spinach

200 g

Sun Dried Tomatoes

75 g, (not in oil), thinly sliced

Turkey breast, skinless, grilled

300 g, cooked and shredded

Parmesan Cheese

30 g

Instructions

  1. Cook the tagliatelle in a pan of boiling water for 10-12 minutes or until al dente. Drain, reserving some of the cooking water.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan set over a medium heat, add the onion and cook for 5-10 minutes, adding the garlic and thyme during the final minute of cooking time. Add the crème fraîche and cook for a further 1-2 minutes. Stir through the lemon zest.
  3. Meanwhile, put the spinach in a microwave-safe dish and cook, covered, on high for 2 minutes to wilt. Add the wilted spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, turkey and pasta to the pan with the sauce. Stir to combine, adding some of the reserved cooking water to loosen if needed, until the turkey is warmed through. Season to taste, then scatter over the parmesan to serve.
