Pesto Pasta Turkey with Roasted Red Peppers
A turkey sandwich the day after the big feast is practically mandatory, but after one, the universal question is what to do with the rest of the turkey. Loosen your belt — you’ll want room for this tasty collection.
Look for pesto where fresh pasta is sold or in the refrigerated section of warehouse stores.
Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions. Drain pasta, reserving ½ cup water. Return pasta to pot.
Toss pasta with turkey, mozzarella, pesto, roasted peppers, pine nuts, salt, pepper flakes, and reserved pasta water. Serve immediately.
