Coat a medium-sized saute pan with olive oil. Place it over medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Cook until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add the turkey and saute until it's cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the pesto or sun-dried tomatoes, tomato puree, and peas and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for about 5 more minutes and season generously with salt and pepper.
