Turkey Tagliatelle with Herby Tomato Sauce

When done properly, creamy tagliatelle with juicy crunchy-crusted turkey drumstick is a dish to remember. Sear the drumstick first, then it’s slow baking time, so be patient. Complete this with a pleasantly sweet tomato sauce, made with white wine and chicken stock and flavored with cumin, rosemary, and onion.
