    • 450g angel hair pasta
    • 65g butter
    • 2/3 cup sliced onion
    • 1/4 cup (30g) plain flour

    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon chicken seasoning

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook for 4 minutes, or until almost tender. Drain.
    2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion; cook and stir until tender. Stir in the flour until blended, then gradually stir in the milk so that no lumps form. Season with salt, pepper, chicken seasoning and mustard. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat and add 2/3 cup cheese, stirring until cheese melts. Add mushrooms.
    3. Place a layer of pasta in the bottom of a 20x30cm baking dish. Cover with a layer of turkey, and then a layer of cheese sauce. Repeat the layers. Sprinkle remaining 1/3 cup cheese over top.
    4. Bake for about 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until sauce is bubbly and cheese on top is toasted.

    A great way to use leftover turkey either need to make 1 1/2- 2 times the sauce or use only only 1/2 the amouobt of pasta. Not enough sauce for 1 lb of pasta. Wonderful dish...i know I will make it again.  -  12 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Yummy! I added white cooking wine like a previous person mentioned. I also added a bit of chicken broth. Added my own spices in addition to those called for (basil, oregano, tarragon, salt, and crushed black pepper) to the onions and mushrooms along with a clove of fresh garlic. I will definately make this again!  -  14 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a good recipe. Used one cup milk and one cup half and half for a creamier sauce. Cut the pasta in half, as the last time I made this it came out too dry.  -  24 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
