This recipe is different because it's sooo very creamy! It's easy, fast and makes my kids ask for more! Chicken can be used in place of the turkey, and you can substitute 2 small cans of chopped mushrooms for the fresh. This is great taste for very little work!

Really tasty! I was looking for a recipe to use up some leftover turkey and this one looked really simple and more healthy than some of the other ones out there. I did alter quite a few things and it still came out great! I subbed plain yogurt for 1/2 of the sour cream (I am really getting into adding yogurt instead of sour cream because I don't really notice the difference and it is so much better for you), added an extra 4-6oz of spaghetti, put in about 1 1/2 cups of leftover roasted carrots from the turkey dinner, and added 1/4 tsp of ground cayenne pepper and 1/4 tsp of season salt for extra zing. I also separated this out into 2 dishes (filled up 2 8x8 glass pyrex dishes just right) so I could add 1/2 bag of peas and 1/4 tsp more cayenne to the DH's batch. Then I put a little shredded cheddar on top of both and cooked as directed. Will be adding this to my list of go-to recipes for sure!

Yum, yum, yum! I had frozen the leftover bits and pieces of turkey from Thanksgiving and couldn't wait to try this out. I had to make this recipe by memory and the only mistake I made was only adding 1 cup of sour cream, but really- I don't think I would change it now! Even better the next day and works well with light soup and sour cream....added a handful of cheddar on top as well. Thanks!

This was super YUMMY! I was sick of turkey so this was a good change up that helped me to be able to finish up that Thanksgiving bird. I added shredded cheese, chopped onion, minced garlic, and I sprinkled it with paprika. Very YUMMY!
