Olive and Fennel Pasta with Turkey

Olives by ng @ Whats for Dinner?I was going to make hamburgs for dinner last night, but then I saw nice olives on sale. I would have put the olives in the hamburgs, but then I found some nice fennel and turkey drumsticks.

In a big pan or pot:
1 tsp oil
brown the drumsticks
1 1/2- 2 onions chopped
4 cloves of garlic
2 large carrots chopped small
1/2 cup chopped turnip or swede
1 bulb of fennel (save the tops)
1 cup chopped olives
Cook the veg down for about 5min.
Add 1 can of tomatoes and water to cover.
Salt, pepper, dried herbs (oregano, basil, parsley) and 1 tsp of smoked paprika.
Cook for 15 min or until the turkey done.
Top with fresh parsley and the fennel tops.

Olive and Fennel Pasta with Turkey by ng @ Whats for Dinner?With so much nice veg in the sauce, pasta is optional. We had tagliatelle and it was yummy!


  1. About how long did it take to cook the turkey?

  2. I put the turkey in with the onions so by the time I had everything else in it was 15 min, cooked 15 min more.
