Recipe by ItalianDiva40
Very easy and flavorful dish to make with your leftover turkey! My mother handed down this family recipe and my kids look forward to it every year. Great to make on the weekend after Thanksgiving. It is holiday/comfort food at it's best! We enjoy ours in a big bowl over rice while watching football!!
