Turkey Macaroni Bake

"A co-worker gave me this recipe when we were discussing quick-and-easy ways to use leftover turkey," recalls Cherry Williams of St. Albert, Alberta. "The mild cheesy casserole is a hit with my family. And it doesn't get much easier than don't even have to cook the macaroni first!"

    Lots of cheese! Very similar to tuna noodle casserole. My family enjoyed it and it was an easy meal.

    I changed this recipe a bit by using Sam Mills Gluten Free noodles. It turned out great and still cooked in the same amount of time. This is such a simple and versatile dish. I will definitively be making it again and again.

    I used ham and added bread crumbs on top. It would be much better with more sauce.

    this dish was very good. My family enjoyed it a lot. I also made it with chicken strips. Very good that way too

    This is a very easy casserole that was perfect for a snowy evening. I didn't think there would be enough liquid for the uncooked macaroni, but it turned out to be just fine.
