Turkey Tetrazzini

I learned this recipe watching my mom make it just about every Thanksgiving with the leftover turkey. While cleaning up the kitchen she would whip up several batches and send it out the door with the guests.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Cost: Approx. $5.00
Serves: 10-12

1 onion diced ($.25)
3 stalks celery diced
3 Tbsp butter
1 can of mushrooms drained ($.75)
2 cans of cream of mushroom soup ($1.00)
1 cup chicken/turkey broth
2 cups leftover turkey shredded
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese ($1.00)
cooked pasta (about 8 servings per package directions) ($1.00)
pepper to taste

Melt butter in skillet and add onion and celery. Saute until translucent. Add mushrooms, turkey soup and broth. Season to taste. Heat mixture through. Toss with cooked pasta. Place in 9x13 baking dish. Top with cheese. Bake covered at 375 for 25 minutes.

**The turkey mixture freezes well to be reheated and added to pasta at a later time.**
