So, what's for dinner tonight you ask. Is anyone still working on their turkey leftover from Thanksgiving, but have ran out of ideas of what to make? Try our Turkey Pasta with Bacon and Cranberry Sauce recipe for likes!

Turkey Pasta with Bacon and Cranberry sauce

* 2 tsp. cornstarch
* 1 cup O Organics™ Chicken Broth
* 1/2 cup pecan halves
* 1/4 lb. Safeway SELECT® Bacon, chopped
* 1 onion (about 1/2 lb.), peeled and chopped
* 3/4 lb. dried Farfalle pasta
* 3/4 cup cranberry sauce or relish
* 2 cups bite-size pieces skinned cooked turkey
* 1/4 cup minced parsley
* Salt and pepper

In a 5- to 6-quart pan over high heat, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch with broth.

While water heats, pour pecans into a 10- to 12-in. frying pan over medium-high heat. Shake or stir nuts frequently until lightly browned under the skin (break a nut to test), about 5 minutes. Pour from pan and set aside.

Return frying pan to medium-high heat; add bacon and onion. Stir often until bacon is brown, about 10 minutes; spoon out fat and discard. Add pasta to boiling water and cook according to package directions.

While pasta cooks, add cranberry sauce and broth mixture to bacon and onion; stir over high heat until boiling. Add turkey and parsley and mix. Keep sauce warm.

Drain pasta. Return to pan, add turkey sauce, and mix. Spoon onto plates. Sprinkle pasta with toasted pecans and add salt and pepper to taste.
