💭 Recipe Tips

  • Pasta Cooking: Cook the pasta al dente according to package instructions. It should be firm to the bite as it will continue to cook slightly when mixed with the sauce.
  • Salt the Pasta Water: Generously salt the pasta water. It should taste like the sea, as this is your chance to flavor the pasta itself.
  • Sautéing Aromatics: When cooking the onions, leeks, and garlic, ensure they are softened but not browned, as this builds the flavor base.
  • Browning the Turkey: Ensure the ground turkey is thoroughly cooked and evenly browned. Breaking it up into smaller chunks as it cooks helps it to cook evenly.
  • Cream Reduction: When adding cream, let it simmer to reduce slightly. This thickens the sauce and intensifies the flavor.
  • Lemon Zest: Be careful to zest only the yellow part of the lemon skin, avoiding the white pith which is bitter.
