3 tablespoons olive oil

50 grams all-purpose flour
850 millilitres stock
chicken or turkey
½ teaspoon nutmeg
300 milliliters milk
or cream if you prefer creamier
2 ½ teaspoons lemon zest
150 grams pasta, whole-wheat macaroni
or regular
½ tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoons white wine
or dry marsala
200 grams mushrooms

½ each lemon
700 grams turkey
cooked and diced
2 teaspoons thyme
freshly chopped
50 grams almonds
toasted and sliced
50 grams Parmesan cheese
½ tablespoon butter, unsalted
cold and cubed


Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a saucepan over low heat, then stir in the flour and cook for two minutes, stirring, to prevent it from catching.

Whisk in the stock.

Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring.

Stir in nutmeg, milk or cream and lemon zest and season well.

Let simmer for 5 to 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a pot of boiling salted water according to the packet directions.

Drain and refresh.

Stir through oil to prevent it from sticking.

Heat remaining oil in a nonstick skillet over a medium heat.

When it is sizzling, stir in mushrooms and cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes. (Add two cups of washed baby spinach for the last minute of cooking mushrooms, if desired.)

Add white wine or marsala and lemon juice and cook for another 1 or 2 minutes.

Mix together sauce, turkey, thyme, pasta, mushrooms and cooking juices if feel too dry in a bowl.

Transfer into a 2-litre baking dish and sprinkle with sliced almonds, parmesan and cold and cubed butter.

Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown on top and cook through.

Cool for a few minutes and serve warm.
