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.
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.
the sauce turned out great, very creamy
I used macaroni rather than the penne because that's what we had in the pantry, but I think just about any pasta would work in this dish. Wow! With the rave reviews I got around the dinner table, this leftovers recipe almost outshone the first round of turkey on Thanksgiving day. Everyone absolutely loved it, and I loved the fact that it was so quick and easy to fix.
