I loved this (and so did everyone else who ate it) I substituted the turkey stock I made the day earlier for the broth and added three different types of shredded cheeses. Also added tarragon and garlic (since those are my favorite with poultry) and added about a pound of broccoli (cooked al dente) It was absolutely perfect for a one dish meal with warm bread.
I made this the day after Christmas. Let me tell you after spending two days in the kitchen preparing for Christmas it was great to get in and out of the kitchen in 30 minutes. Used my leftover turkey with egg noodles instead of spaghetti and whipping cream instead of the condensed soup, (i didn't have these items so I substituted). My husband LOVED it. It was so tasty. I will definately add this this to my regular menu.
I halfed this recipe and we just loved it. I had a leftover turkey breast in the freezer from the last time I brined a turkey and it was just fantastic. This is a keeper!!!
Very delicious! Thank you for posting!
This was a big hit at my house, even with the picky eaters. (They did pick out the mushrooms) Thanks for sharing, RecipeNut! I did add garlic, salt&pepper and cooked the veggies in evoo instead of the margarine. It was still creamy - super comfort food. But even better than how good it tasted was how easy it was to clean up. I was afraid with all the cheese & creamy soups that it would be a casserole dish nightmare. It served up so easily, there was minimum clean up for the dishes, yippee! I did spray the casseroles with Pam.
I used RZ to cut the ingredients down to half, used homemade stock, and omitted the celery & peppers for the kids. The adults agreed that this was dry... if I made it again I'd use two cans of creamed soup on the half batch. Not bad, just not the creamy texture we were expecting.
Great dish. I made it with chicken. The only substitute I made was cream of chicken soup rather than mushroom. Everyone loved it. I will be making this often. Thanks for posting.
I thought this recipe was just great! Very easy and fast to put together. I was a little leary of adding a whole can of broth. But it didn't turn out too liquidy like a thought, just nice and creamy. I did find it easier to combine the cream of mushroom and broth in a small bowl and then add them to the remaining ingredients in the 9x13. Thanks for posting, RecipeNut!
Pretty good. More like 30 minutes to prepare (not 10). I didn't have bell peppers so I used some store bought shredded carrots instead - worked great. Next time I'll use the cavatappi (as pictured) and not spaghetti, it was pretty messy to serve. I have to say it was better the 2nd day.
I can never have enough recipes for using leftover turkey..My DH and I thought this was a good casserole. I did quarter this recipe.Enough for another meal.. I used bowtie pasta,I used 1 tbls butter to saute veggies.Omitted mushrooms,Husband hates them. Omitted crm of mushroom .And for the cream of chicken soup (why open a can when I had broth in refrigerator)I used cream soup substitute#57287 and added more chicken broth and leftover whipping cream from baking.Pam sprayed glass dish. I also added more cheese over the top of baking dish before baking casserole.I will make this again...
