A lighter way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers without the addition of any cream soups. A simple meal we enjoy with a green salad. There is a similar recipe posted, however, this is the Cooking Light Quick and Easy version that I use, and since I just spent 30 minutes going through my cookbooks trying to find it, thought I'd post it here for future reference.
