Got leftovers?

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving filled with family and good food, I know I did! I cooked 2 turkeys this year, one in the roaster and one in the deep fryer. Both turned out very moist and tender but I have lots of leftovers even though we had 15 for dinner. I thought I'd share with you my favorite turkey leftover recipe. It's yummy and easy, who could ask for more?

Turkey Tetrazzini
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 -10 3/4 oz can chicken broth
1 - 8 oz pkg cream cheese, cut into cubes
7 ozs spaghetti, cooked and drained
1 cup cooked turkey, chopped
1 - 4 oz can mushrooms, drained
2 Tbs Pimiento, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Saute onion and celery in butter. Add chicken broth and cream cheese, stirring until cream cheese is melted. Add the remaining ingredients except Parmesan cheese and toss lightly. Pour into a casserole dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

**note: I can never follow a recipe "exactly" so I usually add more turkey and Parmesan cheese than this calls for

I'd love to hear your favorite recipes for leftover turkey. Please comment and/or leave a link to share.

You won't find me out shopping today. I am a bargain hunter but I can't stand the crowds and rudeness of the shoppers that are out today so I'm content to stay home and clean up the rest of yesterday's mess and browse the ads. I finished the first book in Twilight series so I can pass it on to my daughter, Kayla (I wanted to preview it before letting her read it) . We are looking forward to seeing the Wizard of Oz tonight at the Children's Theater and making our Christmas shopping and wish lists.
