Turkey Noodle Bake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Diane C

This recipe became the answer to my Thanksgiving leftovers. I created it in my kitchen a couple of years ago after I had purchased a too-large turkey. When my 4 year old son (a very picky eater) asked me if I could make this for him everyday, I knew I had done something right! You can use any type of milk (fat free, whole, 1 or 2%), and any type of sour cream you like. This recipe is best with home made noodles (recipe below). Also, if you have any leftover gravy, you can blend a 1/4 to a 1/2 cup when you combine all ingredients.

WOW! Yummy comfort food. I love homemade noodles, and the only change I made was subbing frozen peas for the mixed veggies and I used leftover recipe #134020 . This is the kind of meal that makes me feel like a kid again. Thanks Diane! Made for My3Chefs Nov '09.
