Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook mushrooms, leeks and garlic in hot oil in a very large nonstick skillet over medium heat about 6 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and leeks are starting to brown, stirring occasionally.

  • Meanwhile, cook linguine according to package directions, adding parsnips for the last 4 minutes of cooking time. Drain and keep warm.

  • Add half-and-half, syrup and salt to the mushroom mixture. Cook and stir just until boiling. Add turkey, sage and drained pasta mixture. Cook and toss for 2 to 3 minutes to heat through. Remove from the heat. Add egg and quickly toss to coat (mixture may appear curdled).

  • Divide pasta mixture among six serving plates. Top with bacon and sprinkle with pepper.
