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!

yummalicious! i used this as a "base recipe" 'cause i liked the simplicity. i sauted the veggies in 1 Tbs butter first and added some chopped carrots and minced garlic to the mix. i also added one splash of lemon juice, 1/4 c. parmesan cheese and 1/4 c. sour cream, 1 tsp. chicken base, some oregano, sage and thyme. topped with some bread crumbs, small pats of butter and some extra cheddar. AWESOME! thank you so much for posting.

Never had tried this before and was looking for a way to use some leftover turkey. Soooo good! I will look forward to this more than the actual turkey on Thankgiving. Thanks for a great recipe!

Great, easy solution for leftover turkey, which, I have to admit, my family usually finds distasteful. They like this, though; even the kids gobbled it up with no complaints. Easy to throw together. Add a bag of frozen peas and you're done.

I used something else green for the bell peppers. I also assembled some, froze it, defrosted it overnight in the fridge, and baked. Both came out great.

This was really tasty and such a great way to make sure the left over turkey doesn't go to waste! I will make a few changes for next time though and use fresh mushrooms (apparently my husband is picky about mushies from a can - who knew?) and I'll also cook the onion and pepper first so they are soft. They were super crunchy for me (maybe they are supposed to be that way?) and I'm not a big fan of that texture but the taste was fantastic!! Thanks so much for sharing this!
