Recipe by MailbagMary
This recipe came out of The Woman's Day Encyclopedia of Cookery from 1966. This set of books taught me how to cook as a young bride in 1972. This is one of my favorite recipes out of these books, and every year after Thanksgiving I make this casserole. I think this may be the one and only recipe I use now as a 'seasoned' cook from these cookbooks, but can't get rid of them! Feel free to lower the calories as you see fit.
- 2 cups dry noodles (I use no yolk)
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen broccoli (I use fresh)
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup turkey broth (I use leftover gravy) or 1 cup chicken broth (I use leftover gravy)
- 1 cup undiluted evaporated milk
- 1 cup diced cheddar cheese
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups diced cooked turkey
- 1⁄4 cup toasted slivered almonds
