This originated many years ago as a Turkey Tetrazinni recipe, for a family that didn't like mushrooms or sherry! Eventually, added garlic & a creamier sauce.

This was very good. It was a little bland for me, but I knew as I made it that it would be. I should have followed my instincts and added a bit more pepper. I also subbed about half a can of evaporated milk as part of the milk. Not a great idea, just in case anyone wonders how that turned out. It made the mixture too thick for my taste. This was a great way to use up turkey leftovers, and I will definitely make it again! Thanks for posting!
