I love love this recipe! It starts with the basic white sauce, which I learned in Foods class, but I added to it with some leftover Thanksgiving turkey and cheese. Enjoy!

Just made a batch this morning.. easy peasy, no ingredients that I had to go purchase thankfully. I did use asiago cheese (and had to use 2x as much since it's so mild compared to cheddar), and it was FABULOUS! Perfect for these cold, blustery, late Fall/early winter days. Warm, filling, and very satisfying. Thanks for the recipe! I will be using this again for sure. Would be just as good using leftover chicken.
