  • Add the broth, increase the heat to moderately high, and simmer until the liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup. Stir in the cream and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat and simmer until slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the turkey, parsley, and pepper.

  • In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the spaghetti until just done, about 12 minutes. Drain and toss with the sauce.

Suggested Pairing

The smokiness of the turkey will be best with a red or white wine with lots of acidity. For a red, look for a Pinot Noir from Oregon. For a white, try a Riesling from the Alsace region of France.
