Next Day Turkey Primavera Recipe

Publisher Photo
I make this recipe often around the holidays. It's a wonderful way to use leftover turkey without feeling like it's a "repeat" meal. I love pasta, and the creamy sauce in this primavera is so easy to make. —Robyn Hardisty, Lakewood, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 20, 2014

"Wonderful!! I used whatever veggies I had in the house. The only change I made was to add cornstarch to thicken the sauce. This will be a regular addition to our meal rotation!"

"Delicious! I used the left-over turkey from the Slow-Cooked Herbed Turkey recipe, omitted the asparagus and added bell pepper. So good my family added it to our "top 10" meals."

"I am so glad to have found this recipe again. I made it several years ago, and it was wonderful. My husband and 4 kids all loved it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 26, 2012

"This was delicious eventhough I used 2% milk instead of cream which I didn't have. I used a bit of corn starch to thicken it. I think brocolli would work in place of asparagus. I will definately try this again."
