Turkey Pasta Pie Using Leftovers
This recipe is simple and delicious!
It is a bit out of the ordinary for leftover turkey recipes but it makes good use of left-overs. It is similar to the old-fashioned version of tuna noodle casserole. This is a great way to bring a balanced meal to the dinner table using the left overs in your fridge.

*All Alfredo sauce in a jar is not created equal. Check your ingredient list to see that you are getting a quality real-food product. Alfredo sauce made from a real dairy product will never be low calorie or carb free. It is better to pick real food ingredients that give you all the nutrients you need to maintain a healthy life style.
