Guy Fieri's Tequila Turkey Fettuccine Recipe Is One of His Favorites

Celebrity chef Guy Fieri made his tequila turkey fettuccine recipe on The Rachael Ray Show, and everyone wanted the creative pasta recipe. (Watch this video to see Rachael and Fieri make the dish.) Fieri says it's one of his all-time favorite recipes. Fieri makes this Mexican-inspired pasta with turkey breast, vegetables, cheese and, of course, tequila.

This creamy pasta recipe is a meal on its own, but you could add a side of vegetables or a fresh garden salad or Caesar salad. Pack the leftovers for lunch the next day.

Cuisine: American / Italian
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced jalapeno
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 5 ounces turkey breast, cooked and sliced
  • 1 ounce tequila
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro leaves
  • 9 ounces fettuccine pasta, cooked to al dente according to package directions
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan

For Serving

  • lime wedges,
  • fresh cilantro 
  • chopped Roma tomatoes
