I add roughly chopped portabellas as that was what I had. I also used wheat pasta which was great. This was very good and I will make it many more times. We like the flavor that the bell pepper, onion and celery gave it.

Believe it or not, we still have a lot of turkey in the freezer left-over from Thanksgiving. I made this casserole to use some of it up. We really enjoyed it. Very simple but had the creamy, cheesy, pasta that my family loves. Made no changes in the recipe and we all felt it was wonderful as is. Thanks Nurse Di.

I thought this was very good, but next time I will tweak it. It was too dry, not creamy as I had hope, so either more milk, little sour cream, cream cheese or more soup. Also, needs more cheddar cheese. I love cheese. I did throw in some frozen peas-yum. Oh, I will bake covered next time. My hubby loved it. I served with some crescent rolls. This is a keeper without a doubt. Thanks NurseDi, your recipes I can always count on!
