"This dish is very quick to make. I needed a recipe to use up ham so that's what I used. We don't like nutmeg so left out. Next time I will try the sherry. I also topped it off with fresh Parmesan. Very good,can't wait to make it again. So versatile!"

"This was really good! A great way to use leftover turkey. The flavor was good, easy to put together. Thinking I may toss some fresh broccoli in next time to add some color!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 28, 2010

"My two boys (5 &9) really loved this recipe. Both of them had third helpings! I substituted chicken broth for the bouillon and pasta water. I also didn't have the lemon pepper but found a substitution of lemon peel, pepper and salt.

I took the lid off for the last 5 minutes of baking because it looked too wet, but I think that made it too dry. Next time we'll leave the lid on."
