Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 25 min.
- 12 ounces uncooked multigrain spaghetti, broken into 2-inch pieces
- 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

- 1 cup fat-free evaporated milk
- 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
- 4 cups cubed cooked turkey breast

This was absolutely delicious! Even my husband who's not fond of casseroles are it up. I served it with a nice green salad. I'll definitely make again!

This is a fabulous way to use up leftover turkey breast! My whole family enjoys this dish...even my husband who normally won't eat mushrooms. The cooking sherry adds such a nice flavor to the dish, so don't skip it! It's also very filling and has a rich, satisfying flavor. Yum!

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 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.

This was amazing! I can't see how this could have been made any more delicious as a higher calorie meal. The flavor was rich, creamy, and comforting. I ate my portion, then stood over the casserole dish and ate more ... I couldn't stop! I did not make any substitutions or changes other than adding one diced leek because I put onion in everything. I did this while sauteeing the mushrooms. I also used the sherry instead of the chicken broth. Highly recommended! You won't need to go back to the unhealthy version after this one!

My husband and I really enjoyed this. It was rich and tasty and delicious! I found cubed turkey in the meat section and used that instead of leftover turkey. Oh, so goooood!
