Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 37 minutes



Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al dente. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water; stir in small amount of olive oil (about 1 teaspoon) to prevent sticking.
Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frying pan and saute turkey pieces, mushrooms and chives until turkey is lightly browned. Season well with black pepper. Add vinegar and 1 tablespoon olive oil and cook, stirring, until the juices have reduced and thickened. Season again. Add pasta and toss well; cook for about 15 seconds.

Remove pan from the heat and toss in avocado slices and cheese. Stir through well to distribute the heat; then let the dish rest for 2 to 3 minutes before serving. Serve warm or cool completely and serve at room temperature.
