    My family and I loved this. Honestly, there wasn't anything I would change about it.

    Another fine recipe that is full of flavor even after modifying it to accommodate a low sodium diet. Instead of regular butter, I use unsalted butter. For the Italian dressing mix packet, I make my own (search the web) and cut the salt immensely. I did include onions when I cooked the carrots. In addition, I also doubled the veggies and pasta but left seasoning, butter, cream and chicken/turkey amounts as indicated in the recipe. I will definitely make this again. I certainly wish ToH would have included the breakdown of sodium, calories, etc. to take out the guessing. Thanks so much for sharing!!!!

    One of our family favorites. I usually make it with chicken, but use all the other ingredients as listed.

    Wonderful!! I used whatever veggies I had in the house. The only change I made was to add cornstarch to thicken the sauce. This will be a regular addition to our meal rotation!

    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.

    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.
