    Serves: 8 

    • 350g jumbo pasta shells
    • 2 cups cubed cooked turkey
    • 1 1/2 cups leftover stuffing
    • 125g cream cheese, softened
    • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
    • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
    • 4 cups grated mozzarella cheese
    • 1 1/2 cups leftover gravy

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:1hour10min  ›  Ready in:1hour35min 

    1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 20x30cm baking dish.
    2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the shell pasta and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 13 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
    3. Place turkey and stuffing in food processor and pulse until finely ground and combined. Place the turkey mince and stuffing mixture in the bowl of a stand mixer along with the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise and 2 cups of the mozzarella. Mix with paddle attachment on medium-low until well blended.
    4. Spread 1/2 cup of gravy on the bottom of the prepared dish. Stuff the pre-cooked pasta shells with the turkey mixture and place in the dish in tight rows. Top with the remaining gravy and the remaining 2 cups of mozzarella cheese.
    5. Bake covered for 45 minutes. Uncover and cook for an additional 10 minutes until top is browned and bubbly. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.

    This recipe does sound a bit odd but I gave it a try and everyone loved it! I added some leftover corn casserole and it was delicious.  -  01 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was great. Such a nice change from the casseroles and enchiladas that we usually make. Hubby loved them. Very fussy daughter had seconds. Thanks for sharing. Awesome!  -  30 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I wanted to find a recipe that used turkey but was different from the stews, soups and pot pies. This was the perfect recipe. I used canneloni pasta instead of the large shells (b/c that is what I had on hand). Works well The hubby LOVED it!!  -  29 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
