Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon caper drained, rinsed and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic finely grated or pressed
  • 6 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 375 g fusilli pasta
  • 2 onions sliced
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • pinch each granulated sugar, salt and pepper
  • 2 cups shredded skinless roast turkey or chickens (white or dark meat)
  • 2/3 cups sodium-reduced chicken broth

Method

In small bowl, stir together parsley, capers, garlic, 2 tsp of the oil, the lemon zest and lemon juice. Set aside.

In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions. Reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid, drain. Set aside.

While pasta is cooking, in large nonstick skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook onions, stirring occasionally, until softened and golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Add vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add turkey and broth; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 3 minutes.

Stir in pasta and reserved cooking liquid, tossing to coat. Stir in parsley mixture.
