Fettucine cooking Ingredients

  • Turkey – 6 ounces of breast tenderloin steaks, sliced into bite-size strips
  • Pasta – 3 ounces of spinach fettuccine
  • Flour – 2 teaspoon, all-purpose
  • Broth –1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • Sour cream– 1/3 cup, either light or fat-free
  • Mushrooms – 1 cup,  fresh and sliced into thin pieces

  • Garlic – 1 clove minced
  • Pepper – 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Salt – 1/4 teaspoon
  • cooking spray
  • fresh sage sprigs


  1. Blend the sour cream and flour in a bowl until the mixture is free of lumps. Pour in half the broth and stir well. Pour the rest of the broth in slowly and continue stirring until the paste is completely smooth. Add the sage and pepper and set the mixture aside.
  2. Use a nonstick cooking spray to Coat an 8-inch skillet. Preheat the skillet over medium high heat. Sprinkle the turkey with salt and put it into the hot skillet. Add the scallions, mushrooms and garlic to the turkey and allow it to cook until the turkey is no longer pink which should take 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add the sour cream and broth mixture to the skillet along with the turkey. Cook it on medium heat, and stir it continuously until the mixture becomes thick and starts to bubble. Cook the turkey for 1 minute more and then set it aside.
  4. Cook the spinach fettuccine according to the instructions on the package. Drain out the excess water and divide it into two equal portions. Place the pasta portions into two salad bowls or plates and top it off with the turkey mixture.  Garnish your salad with a few sage sprigs.
