Southwest Fusilli With Leftover Turkey

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Tara1183

I made this up when I had too much leftover turkey in the freezer and have loved it ever since. Sometimes I add kale or spinach but not often but it is good that way. This is also really good as a cold salad the next day too.

Good, but not spectacular. Would work well as a cold pasta salad, I think. We didn't use the spinach and also left out the mushrooms. I think it would have been a great accompaniment, but doesn't hold up as the main dish...though my husband and brother in law did come back for thirds!
