Turkey Fettuccine Skillet Recipe

Looking for something to do with all those turkey leftovers?  Here’s a favorite of mine borrowed from one of my go-to cooking magazines, Taste of Home.  It’s great with left over pie. 🙂



  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 cups fat-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt-free seasoning blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup fat-free half-and-half
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups cubed cooked turkey breast
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large ovenproof skillet coated with cooking spray, saute the onion, celery and garlic in oil for 3 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until vegetables are tender. Stir in the milk, seasoning blend and salt. 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 just until melted.
  • Stir in turkey. Drain fettuccine; add to turkey mixture. Heat through. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: 6 servings.

  1. We always have more sides left over than turkey. This sounds good! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. Ohhh, yum, Tracy! I’m saving this recipe for our Christmas leftover turkey. It not only sounds delicious, but easy to make, too. Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂

  3. That looks awesome.

    Seems to me the leftover sweet potatoes and deviled eggs (my favorite!) are better than the first time around. Yum!
