This was excellent! I also added some peas carrots and a little spinich. I also tripled the white sauce for the recipe and even made extra after it was finished to pour over top. That may have been because I used more vegetables & turkey than the recipe called for. Thanks for a great new way to use up all of that leftover turkey! Read More

I thought this was a decent recipe but I would add more sauce next time it seemed as if it didn't make quite enough to cover the whole thing. I took the advice of an earlier reviewer and added parmesan cheese to the sauce maybe it got too thick and that's why it didn't cover everything. Read More

This turned out pretty well. I thought the sauce was rather bland by itself so I added parmesan cheese to it and it was much better. Read More

This turned out great. I ended up adding extra turkey and broccoli and I doubled the white sauce to compensate. I also used regular whole wheat lasagna noodles and boiled them beforehand. Other reviews complained about the white sauce being too bland but if you taste it as you're making it it shouldn't be a problem. I just kept adding salt and pepper and some garlic powder until I got it just right! Read More

Triple the sauce and use cooked lasagna noodles rather than oven ready ones and this recipe would be great! Read More

I took the advice from some others and made more sauce adding some parmesan cheese and a chicken bouillon. I thought it was wonderful and not too much work. Will cook about 5 less noodles next time. Read More

Everyone liked it. I thought it would be dry but truly the white sauce is enough. I even used my Thanksgiving turkey that I had frozen two months prior! Read More
