  • 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
  • 1/4 cup sherry or additional pasta water
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt-free lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup fat-free evaporated milk
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 4 cups cubed cooked turkey breast
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Cook spaghetti according to package directions for al dente. Drain, reserving 2-1/2 cups pasta water; transfer spaghetti to a 13x9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Dissolve bouillon in reserved pasta water.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat; saute mushrooms until tender. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually stir in sherry, reserved pasta water and seasonings. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low; stir in milk and 1/3 cup cheese until blended. Add turkey; heat through, stirring constantly. Pour over spaghetti; toss to combine. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and, if desired, paprika.
  4. Bake, covered, until bubbly, 25-30 minutes.
