Tuesday Treats: Creamy Turkey Noodles

Since Mother Nature isn’t convinced it’s time for spring, I thought I’d share this warm and gooey dinner idea. It’s great for pot lucks, feeding a family, or for making and freezing portions for later. You don’t even have to cook the turkey! How’s that for easy peasy?

Prep Time: 30 min.
Total Time: 1 hr.
Servings: 16 servings, 1 cup each

As the fine folks from the Kraft Kitchens say, “Our Creamy Turkey and Noodles is an easy way to feed a crowd. Get out the frozen mixed veggies and the bow-tie pasta, and we’ll show you how.”

What You Need
1 pkg. (16 oz.) farfalle (bow-tie pasta), uncooked
1/4 cup butter
1 onion, chopped
1 pkg. (16 oz.) frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, corn, green beans, peas)
6 Tbsp. flour
2 cups milk
2 pkg. (7.5 oz. each) OSCAR MAYER CARVING BOARD Oven Roasted Turkey Breast, chopped
2 cans (10-3/4 oz.) reduced-sodium condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup BREAKSTONE’S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
1 pkg. (8 oz.) KRAFT Shredded Three Cheese with a TOUCH OF PHILADELPHIA

Make It
Heat oven to 350ºF.
-Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
-Meanwhile, melt butter in Dutch oven or large deep skillet on medium heat. Add onions; cook and stir 4 min. or until crisp-tender. Add frozen vegetables; cook 4 min. or until thawed, stirring frequently. Stir in flour until blended; cook and stir 1 min. Gradually stir in milk; bring to boil. Cook and stir 2 min. or until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in turkey, soup and sour cream.
-Drain pasta. Add to sauce; stir until evenly coated. Spoon into 2 (13×9-inch) pans sprayed with cooking spray; top with cheese. Cover.
-Bake 30 min. or until heated through, uncovering for the last 10 min.

For all the nutritional information, CLICK HERE. Even though Lauren Reilly, the heroine from my upcoming release MONTANA MOON, is a single woman working in the wilds of Washington D.C., she’s big on cooking a big batch then freezing single serve portions for quick defrost/heating in the microwave. And she’d NEVER eat an entire turkey, though she LOVES turkey so the Carving Board turkey is perfect for her. No buy links today because her story doesn’t release until Thursday. Or maybe tomorrow because sometimes Amazon Kindle Worlds sneaks in the roll out of titles! I’ll be posting buy links all over the KW page here on the website, FB and Twitter when it goes live.
