Turkey and Pasta with Peanut Sauce

Tried this tonight, it was yummy!

6 oz dried fettuccine
2 cups fresh pea pods (or frozen)
1 cup cooked turkey or chicken strips
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh pineapple or one 8 oz can, drained
1/4 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 clove garlic, minced

1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, halve the the fresh pea pods diagonally. Place pea pods and turkey or chicken in large colander. Pour hot cooking liquid from pasta over pea pods and turkey or chicken in colander; drain well. Return the pasta, pea pods, and turkey to the hot pan. Add the pineapple.
2. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small saucepan stir chicken broth into peanut butter. Heat and stir with a whisk until peanut butter melts. Stir in soy sauce, lime juice, red pepper, and garlic; heat through.
3. Add sauce to the pasta mixture. Gently stir to coat pasta with sauce.
