When you add up all the ingredients, this is affordable, and turkey noodle casserole will keep your family fed for a number of days.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Coat a glass baking dish with cooking spray. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until the dish is completely heated through.
Pasta: Cook the pasta until it is al dente. Save some of the pasta water for the rest of the recipe instructions.
Butter: Melt the butter in a large pot on medium heat.
Flour: Add the flour to the butter once it is melted. Use a whisk to combine the ingredients into a paste. Add in a few spoonsful’s of the pasta water at a time, until you’ve reached the consistency of a thicker paste mixture that is a little bit loose. You can use chicken stock instead of the water if you wish.
Milk: Add the milk in, mixing consistently. You should have a creamy sauce at this point.
Thyme, sage, salt and pepper: Season the sauce mixture with the thyme, sage, salt and pepper.
Cheese: Add half of the cheese to the sauce mixture.
Peas: Add the peas to the mixture.
Pasta: Add the cooked pasta back into the mixture.
Turkey: Gently fold the turkey into the pasta mixture.
Pour everything into the glass baking dish. Spread out so it is evenly distributed. Add the rest of the shredded cheese to the top of the dish.
Serve this turkey noodle casserole right out of the oven for a hearty dinner idea. Save the leftovers in an airtight container. Add a little bit of broth or water to the leftovers before briefly heating back up.
