A healthy dinner using leftover turkey and broth. Very nice with Kittencal's Coleslaw # 144435. I used the turkey removed from the carcass after cooking it all night in the crockpot with water to make broth. I also took off any fat from the broth before adding to the dish.

Had this for dinner last night and there are lots of leftovers, since there are only the 2 of us. It was very good, and a wonderful way to use up left over Turkey. I only had white meat left over, but that was just fine. I used chicken broth instead of Turkey broth, and everything else was followed as written. I had already used up the carcass by the time I came across your recipe! Thanks for posting it, carole! This will be a standby for the times that we have turkey and are tired of eating the left overs in the traditional way.

I love this savory dish! I used egg noodles with leftover cooked chicken in place of turkey, added in some fresh garlic, Parmesan cheese and lots of black pepper and some salt, I also did use the herbes de provence (I add that into lots of my dishes). A fast and easy meal for DH and myself. Thanks Carole, we really enjoyed this tonight...Kitten:)
