Thank You Two Casserole

Anytime you fix a big holiday meal it would be irresponsible to not plan on left-overs. Some can be pretty sad warmed-up rehashes of yesterdays meal. Some can be a new taste from the old. Here is a simple to throw together casserole using up the left-overs and yet adding a unique new taste.

This can also be done as an Italian dish by using a tomato sauce and Italian seasonings instead of the sage and thyme. Experiment with left-overs, it is a free meal!


  • Green Beans, mushrooms, onion mix (aprox. 1.5 cups
  • 3/4 lb (approx.) leftover cooked turkey meat, dark or light meat, roughly chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 1 ½ tbs cake flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon thyme (important, do not omit)
  • ½ tsp sage
  • 1 cup milk
  • Salt to taste
  • Sprinkle of Parmesan cheese


Pre heat oven to 375 degrees and spray a 2 quart casserole.
Put the water for pasta on to boil and cut up the cooked turkey.
When boiling, cook noodles according to package directions (abut 9 minutes - Drain)

Heat butter in a large sauté pan on medium-high heat, adding the cut up turkey. Let that start to brown on the edges.

Add the flour and mix well. When dissolved, pour in the milk and add seasonings. Stir until this thickens well, about 4 minutes. The aroma will be fantastic! 

Add the green bean mixture and cook for a couple of minutes stirring occasionally. All you have to do is heat it up.

Pour the drained noodles into the sprayed casserole dish and spoon the turkey mixture on top.

Sprinkle with cheese and let roast in oven for about 25 to 30 minutes to blend these wonderful flavors and scent the room with holiday aromas.

You may wish some heated bread to go with this, but it is a complete meal in a dish as it is. The wonderful homemade creamy sauce pulls this together.

If you have any of the sweet potatoes left over, heat and serve as a dessert in small bowls!
