Reviews for Turkey Casserole
"Loved this recipe! Very tasty. the only thing different, was I used mixed veggies instead of peas. I wasn't sure we would like the water chestnuts, but they added a lot."
"This is a great way to use leftover turkey and I have also used chicken. You would never know that it is a lighter casserole."
