Creamy Turkey and Noodles

Creamy Turkey and Noodles - a simple, delicious dish that is perfect for dinner any night or perfect after Thanksgiving to help you use some of your leftover Turkey!!

Who here LOVES Thanksgiving?!

It’s such a wonderful holiday, and I love that families gather near and far to show gratitude for each other and all their blessings. Not only do you get to spend quality time with your loved ones, but there is SO much good food involved with the day. From turkey to mashed potatoes and everything in between, it’s a day of eating… and eating… and eating. In fact, there are usually so many leftovers that we send home tupperwares full of the day’s feast. One item we always seem to have leftover of is the turkey. With that in mind, I wanted to share a recipe that would be great for AFTER Thanksgiving that could help use up some of that yummy turkey meat. I spotted today’s recipe on Kraft Foods and knew I had to give it a try because it had so many of my favorite ingredients. It was super easy to make and would be perfect for Sunday dinner a few days after Thanksgiving. Best part is it also reheats well and can be enjoyed the next day too. I mean, why not have turkey for days, right?!? That probably won’t work with all the tryptophan that makes you tired. 😉

Hopefully, you will enjoy this dish as much as my family did recently and can help you not waste some of those Thanksgiving leftovers. Here is what you’ll need to make this recipe:

  1. Hi!

    I’m currently working on a blog post about Thanksgiving leftover recipes for a company blog. Could I share a link to your recipe, and one photo on our website? Let me know. Thanks!

  2. The flavor was spot on for turkey pot pie. 16 oz of pasta way too much. 8 oz would be plenty. More vegetables please. Make sauce with more vegetables, put in pan, top with crust. Perfect pot pie. If you want it to be a pasta dish 8 oz pasta.
