Turkey & Pasta Casserole

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

Did you all stuff yourselves silly yesterday? I definitely did! Even with all the chowing down, we still ended up with a lot of leftover turkey. Which is cool, because I always like to find creative and delicious ways to put those holiday leftovers to good use. My daughter is home from college this week and her #1 request for dinner when she's here is always fettuccine. Instead of making my usual recipe that has a very heavy cream sauce, I decided to try this Turkey and Pasta Casserole recipe from Golden Blossom Honey to keep things a little lighter for our tummies. After a heavy Thanksgiving dinner, we definitely need a few days of scaling back on the creamy and fatty recipes around here until we can get our bodies back in check. 

Turkey Pasta Casserole

After hosting Friendsgiving last weekend, attending a work dinner for the holiday, then spending actual Thanskgiving at his mom's house, my husband is sooooo over turkey right now. However, this recipe totally breathes new life into your leftovers since there's an awesome medley of other goodies mixed in. My family gobbled this dish right up, so I was pleased to see that our leftover turkey did not go to waste this year. A win for my wallet and a win for their tummies!

1 pound fettuccine, cooked according to package directions (do not overcook)
1 pound fresh spinach, washed, stems removed, chopped
5 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup half & half

1/4 pound mushrooms, sliced

  1. Is the kitty still alive? How are the dogs treating her?

  2. Sure a different way to use left over turkey indeed. And making it so that even if they say they are over it and yet still enjoy it, is a double win.

  3. Yum, we love pasta casseroles in our home, looks so good! Have a lovely weekend ☺

  4. I'm totally with your hubby on being over turkey. Yesterday I gave lots of it away to whoever would take it. LOL This definitely looks like a different way to eat the leftovers. Despite being sick of the food, it's better to be creative than wasteful. Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Bomb ass way to use up the leftovers!! We have some turkey leftover and I am going to tell my husband he needs to make himself a turkey casserole to get rid of them all! hahaha!

  8. That sounds good. I do have a lot of leftovers. I gave my daughter a bunch of them though.

  9. Thank you for sharing this. I'm Vegan since 2012 but always looking for GOOD and yummy alternatives to make vegan style.

  10. Hmmm yum! This Turkey & Pasta Casserole is making me super hungry that I could hear my tummy growl. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  11. Typically there is enough for everyone to bring back whatever.

    This recipe is a great way to use up the left over turkey. We only got a small bird this year, so we have only a little left over. I think that would be enough though to make this turkey pasta casserole. Looks really good and I am positive my kids will like it.

  15. Yes! This casserole it's so perfect for my family! I am sure it will be a new favorite in our house!

  16. I bet the Golden Blossom Honey really made those food more special! :)

  17. I need to try this recipe! I love Alfredo sauce, but I know we really should eat something a little lighter.

  18. this sounds delicious. worth trying this turkey casserole recipe with the kids.

  19. We have a dip that Travis made, that's not so pretty. There's a lot. We should eat it!

    I had dough left that I didn't end up using. I made a dessert with it last night.

  20. The casserole looks good, and fairly low maintenance. I love meals like that!

  21. oh my..looking super yummy and sooo creamy Theresa. My kids love all those creamy gravy and they will definitely devour it..

  22. This looks delicious, Theresa! You always do a wonderful job of photography for your posts. All the best to you!
