    flower7's Note:

    I found this recipe while browsing through my Betty Crocker cookbook and thought it sounded tasty. I love that you don't have to pre-cook the pasta. The original recipe called for curry powder but I also like it with chili powder for something totally different (if using chili powder, you will want to double the amount). Also a good use for that leftover holiday turkey!

      No, I did not make this recipe according to the instructions. I made changes, but if I hadn't made those changes I probably would have rated this even lower. As it is, I'm rating it because I believe some changes should be made.

      First, I added a full teaspoon of curry powder because I enjoy strong flavors. Next, because I used mild cheddar, I used double what was recommended as per another review which stated that they used mild and the flavor of the cheese didn't come through. I did not have pimentos, but used the mushrooms. I added 2 oz. of water extra (because of the lack of pimentos) and added about 1/4 cup extra of milk.

      I do NOT recommend adding the 1/2 teaspoon of salt. It seems like only a little bit, but when you use pre-cooked chicken or turkey, there is already salt added to it (presumably you season your food when you cook it). Also, the cream of chicken soup has a great deal of salt in it already. I used no salt added mushrooms as well, and I'm glad I did.

      With the above changes made, it was salty enough and seasoned well. I do not recommend adding that extra bit of salt unless you are using canned ingredients that are low sodium.

      I DID enjoy this dish as I made it though. I served it with a salad as a palate cleanser and it worked out well. I will probably make this dish again, but will use fresh mushrooms that I will saute first. There wasn't much flavor with the canned mushrooms. This was a very easy dish because the pasta did not have to be pre-cooked. I used large elbow mushrooms and they were perfectly tender enough to eat.

      I have prepared this recipe for at least 25 years. I recently went in search of my recipe and...IT WAS MISSING. My fiancé and I tore apart the kitchen looking for it, to no avail. We were both crushed because we love this dish. So I took to the web hoping to track it down. Lo and behold, there it was and I knew it was the same recipe because it contained uncooked macaroni, making it one of the easiest recipes ever. So we decided to use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving as a substitute for chicken. As we took our first bites, we were giddy with relief! This was the missing recipe!!!! So many, many thanks to you, Food.com. This recipe will never be lost again!!!!!!

      Delicious comfort food that is so easy to make. Whats not to love? I added some sliced leek and since I didn't have the pimento I added some orange bell pepper. It all came out perfectly yummy and this will certainly be made again. Made for Photo Tag.
