  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh tarragon or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 cup frozen peas

  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add celery, onions, broccoli and carrots; cook and stir 10-12 minutes or until onions are tender. Add garlic, parsley, tarragon and seasonings; cook 1 minute longer.
  2. Add mushrooms and peas; cook and stir 3-5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Stir in turkey, broth, soup, yogurt, cream cheese and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Add pasta; toss to combine and heat through.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled pasta mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little broth or milk if necessary.
