Turkey Fettuccine Skillet Meal (Great for Holiday Leftovers)

Turkey Fettuccine Skillet Meal (Great for Holiday Leftovers) www.herviewfromhome.com
Written by Shannon Frink


‘Tis the season of the holiday leftover.  I have to admit – I love them.   We purposely make extra turkey to make turkey and noodles, quesadillas, homemade potpie, and more.  Delish!  I enjoy this recipe because not only can I use up the extra turkey, but also some of the holiday relish tray.  And, it is pretty much a one-dish meal and ready to go within 20 minutes.  Pair it up with some fresh fruit and a little leftover pumpkin dessert and you have a meal fit for a king.  Maybe I need a bigger turkey!?!?

 

Turkey Fettuccine Skillet Meal

All you need:
8 oz uncooked whole grain fettuccine
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup chopped celery
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup slice fresh mushrooms
2 cups chopped broccoli
1 tsp canola oil
*2 cups fat-free milk
*1 tsp low-sodium seasoning (I use Lawry’s 17 Salt-Free Seasoning) or 1/4 tsp salt
*2 T. cornstarch
*½ cup fat-free half-and-half
*1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 cups cubed cooked turkey breast
¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

*Note – you could use a prepared Light Alfredo sauce instead of these ingredients.

All you do:
1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions (you can make this is the same skillet and then just put into a bowl to the side when cooked). Meanwhile, in a large ovenproof skillet warm the Canola oil and sauté the onion, celery, and broccoli for 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms. Cook and stir vegetables until tender.

2. Stir in the milk, seasoning blend and bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and half-and-half until smooth; stir into skillet. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Stir in Parmesan cheese until just melted.
           a. If using pre-made Alfredo sauce, skip step two. Instead, pour Alfredo sauce over the vegetables and stir. Warm for 2-3 minutes until starting to gently bubble.
