Bring on the leftovers!
Get ready for the inevitable week of turkey leftovers with this creamy and delicious One Pot Turkey Mushroom Pasta. It will gobble up 2 cups of leftover turkey while being quick, easy and perfect for the whole family. This one tastes a little like turkey pot pie, without the pie. One of the ways I make sure there’s added flavour is to brown the mushrooms nicely. The trick here is to start with a hot oiled pan, don’t overcrowd the mushrooms and allow them to cook on one side until golden before stirring. It’s a great way to maximize flavour. I also like to use flavoured cream cheese for added flavour. For this recipe, I used a garden vegetable cream cheese, however, herb and garlic would also work well.
While this post is geared at using up leftover turkey, you could also use leftover chicken, purchased rotisserie chicken or even frozen cooked cubed chicken. The whole premise is minimal cooking involvement but great tasting creamy pasta cooked in one pot.
Being a shift worker, I’m a big, big fan of one pot dinners. Working nights, I still cook dinner prior to leaving for work, so easy and relatively convenient is a must when it comes to getting dinner on the table. One Pot Turkey Mushroom Pasta is just one of my go-to meals to make my work week easier.
