  • Turkey breast. buy a piece of turkey breast and cook it in the oven.
  • 2 cups of fusilli noodles we used gluten free
  • 2 fresh ripe, tomatoes
  • 1 cup of fresh green peas
  • 1/2 cup of water or milk.
  • 1 cup shredded old cheddar cheese white with a sharp edge
  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese orange for topping at end
  • 1 teaspoon of tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper


  • Cook turkey breast in the oven for as long as it takes. (This could be prepared earlier and sliced up or you might buy a package of ready to eat turkey breast strips.I have one local store here that I trust with really good quality turkey strips)
  • Slice turkey into small strips after deboning and removing the skin if you cooked your own turkey breast.
  • Boil water for the noodles and cook until del dente.
  • Rinse and drain noodles.
  • Pour into a lovely Fiesta Large covered casserole dish.
  • Add the water or milk
  • Add the shredded old cheddar and mix.
  • Add the chopped fresh tomatoes.
  • Add the peas.
  • Stir together.
  • Add the turkey
  • Add the tarragon
  • Stir together
  • Cook for about 40 minutes - stir a couple of times to make sure it isn't sticking.
  • I also put a tiny drizzle of olive oil on bottom of the dish to be sure it didn't stick.
  • Right before serving add the pepper and the cheddar cheese.
