It's  Rachel Ray's recipe for leftover turkey tettrazini tonight...this is really delicious...

 

 

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

 4 tablespoons butter

1 onion, finely chopped

2-3 cloves garlic chopped

Salt and pepper

4 tablespoons flour

1/2 cup dry white wine

1 1/2 cups turkey gravy or turkey stock

2 cups milk

A little freshly grated nutmeg

1 cup grated Parmigiano Regginano cheese

1 pound cooked leftover turkey chopped

1 1/2 cups cooked cauliflower or broccoli leftovers chopped

1/2 cup peas, defrosted or leftovers

 

 

Toppings:

homemade breadcrumbs, chopped toasted leftover stuffing or Panko mixed with melted butter and Parmigiano Regginano cheese

1 pound egg noodles or egg pasta cooked to al dente

 PREPARATION

Pre-heat the oven to 375ºF. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat; add the butter and melt into the oilive oil. Add the onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Add the flour and stir for 1 minute. Whisk in the wine, then the gravy or stock and milk; adjust the salt and pepper and season with nutmeg, to taste. Let thicken enough to coat a spoon and stir in the parm Parmigiano Regginano cheese. Stir the turkey, cauliflower, peas, pasta into the sauce and turn everything into a casserole dish. Top with breadcrumbs and bake until heated through, about 30 minutes.

 

 

I used our Mother's dressing toasted for the topping... Don't skimp on the chopped cauliflower, it adds a sweet crunch tht is really delicious...and the peas add just the right amount of color...This recipe is a keeper!
