Turkey-Cheese Macaroni Bake

"'My family requests this casserole all year,' says Doris Rector of Comanche, Oklahoma. 'It's a great way to use up leftover turkey, and it freezes well, too. I lightened up the original recipe by reducing the butter in the sauce and substituting reduced-fat cheese and fat-free milk.'"

Yum! We loved this recipe! I did make some changes, though. First of all, I took other’s suggestions and added veggies. I had a bag of mixed corn, carrots, peas, and green beans, I threw in ...

This recipe was okay at best. My daughter wouldn't eat it (but she's picky as it is) and my husband and I ate it but felt it wasn't all that flavourful. We wouldn't make again.

This was quite good, but bland. Next time I will likely add more cheese and some spices.

A different way to use up left over turkey. This turned out pretty tasty. I did not make the flour/cheese mixture. Instead used 1 can of cheese soup and 2 cups milk. Also added a squirt of p...
