Turkey & Veggie Pasta

This is a great way, of many, to use some of that left over turkey.

2 medium carrots, julianned & cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2tsp dried Basil, or 3 sprigs fresh
2 cups cooked turkey, cut into small (1/2 inch or so) pieces
2 8oz packages Fettuccine noodles (or shape of choice)
2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 cup Peas (canned work well, but fresh is good too)
1Tbs Margarine (or Butter works eve better)
Grated Parmesan (or 'shaky cheese' as the bottled stuff is called in our house)

Boil fettuccine noodles in well salted (or oiled) water for 5 minutes. Add carrot pieces & continue boiling 2 more minutes. Drain well. Add turkey, mushrooms, & peas tossing gently. Stir in butter & cheese, stirring gently to coat. Serve hot with garlic toast for a hearty, warm meal.
