Great noodle dish that you can make with leftover turkey or even chicken. Has a touch of nutmeg for that special flavor. Recipe courtesy of Karen.

This made a great supper to use leftover smoked turkey! You'll have to forgive that I left out the mushrooms; my husband won't eat them. I made as is, even had the heavy cream for once. I did add some onion and garlic which I sauteed in the butter before adding flour. Delicious!
