Turkey Leftovers pasta bake

Turkey  Leftovers pasta bake

Are we nearly there yet? I’m going to keep this one short. Its Friday, its Christmas eve eve and I’ve a bottle of red withturkey leftover pasta bake my name on it. A few weeks ago I shared my step by step guide to roast turkey with the echo.ie. Which meant I had a shed load of Turkey leftovers. I discovered there weren’t many turkey leftover recipes around,  using up all your Christmas dinner leftovers without having to add much else to it. Something that you can throw together (think of the hangover) and end up with a dish that’s just as worthy as the Christmas dinner. Not an afterthought, like a big pot of turkey curry that will have you dashing to the loo right up the new years eve. (that’s not experience talking from my childhood I swear) 😉

Enjoy x (now where’s my wine)

Ingredients
