Smoked Turkey and Spring Pea Fettuccine


8 oz Dry Fettuccine Noodles, Boiled in Salted Water
1 T Olive Oil
1 T Minced Garlic
1/4 Onion, Minced
6-8 oz Smoked Turkey or Chicken, Chopped
16 oz Heavy Cream
1/2 C Green Peas (Frozen or Fresh)
Salt, To Taste
Pepper, To Taste
Cayenne Pepper, To Taste
2 T Minced Fresh Tarragon Leaves (See Note)
1 t Lemon Zest (See Note)

Boil the noodles for the least amount of time on the package so they are a bit under done.

Heat olive oil in pan, over medium heat until warm. Add garlic and onion. Saute for 30 seconds. Add turkey and saute for 1 minute. Add cream, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 4-5 minutes or until the it reduces and thickens into a sauce. Stir in peas and turn down to low until the noodles are done.

Add noodles, tarragon leaves, and lemon zest. Mix well. Top with Parmesan or Romano if desired.

NOTE: I wasn't a huge fan of the lemon zest the last time, so next time I will probably omit it and see how i like it. Regardless, the sauce was very creamy and definitely a keeper!
