  • ½ c sliced mushrooms (optional, but I add them)
  • ½ c sliced onions
  • ¼ c butter or margarine
  • ¼ c flour
  • 2 c chicken broth
  • 1 c Half & Half (I've used milk before and it was fine, also used heavy cream and it was great)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 8 oz spaghetti noodles (or whatever you have), cooked, drained
  • 3 c turkey cooked, diced (I always use chicken except right after Thanksgiving)
  • ½ c shredded cheddar cheese more if you like yours really cheesy


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Lightly brown mushrooms and onions in margarine.
  • Stir in flour. Cook until bubbly. Stir in the broth and cream.
  • Add salt & pepper. Cook, stirring often until mix boils.
  • Place a layer of noodles in a buttered 9x13 pan.
  • Mix remaining noodles with sauce and meat. Sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20 mins or until bubbly.
  • This can be made ahead and refrigerated until baking time.
