    It was really good and really easy. Much appreciated after 5 hours in the kitchen on thanksgiving! We usually don’t like to eat leftover turkey because of the taste but this hid it well. Will keep it for chicken or bacon next.

    This was so freaking delicious!!! Family loved it! I used ground turkey and smoked bacon. I put green onions for color and at the end sprinkled some lemon juice. This is going in our keep file.

    We had friends at our home in Spain over Christmas and New Year and, despite all the excesses at that time, this recipe proved to be a great hit with all. It was quick and easy to make and very tasty. Thank you for sharing it.

    This was delicious! I’ve made it several times now. We’ve started to add broccoli to the dish to make it more of a one pot meal and its flavor blends in really well.

    It is delicious – I have bookmarked it! I make it with fresh ground turkey and cook it with the eggs – so good!

    Thank you for this recipe. I was looking for a pasta dish with turkey when I came across your recipe. I made it tonight. Not only was it quick to assemble (very important for a weekday dinner) but my husband and I really liked it.

    Loved this recipe! I found some excellent ready-made basil pesto at Whole Foods, and used pasteurized egg whites instead of the egg. This would also be great with sundried tomatoes!

    This recipe was easy and an amazingly good combination, BUT I got salmonella from it even though I stirred in the eggs immediately after draining and adding the hot hot noodles. The eggs cooked and got warm, but apparently not warm enough. To avoid this, I would want to return it to the heat or put in the microwave. Since it was all mixed, I don’t think the curdling would have been significant at all…but eggs today are just not safe unless thoroughly cooked.

    This was delicious! The lemon zest really sings. I am cooking for the construction crew building my deck this week and this dish was a solid hit. Many thanks,

    Many thanks for the recipe! All family simply delighted. Unfortunately my English is bad therefore it is compelled to write through the translator. Very few good qualitative recipes on the Internet. Personally to you thanks. I will wait for new recipes! Yours faithfully Olga

    Made this tonight for supper and it was great! We halved the recipe and used penne pasta. After tossing everything together, sprinkled on shredded Parmesan cheese and put the pan under the broiler to melt.

    So happy to have found this recipe – used the left over dark meat turkey tonight in this delicious and satisfying dish. It was a big hit. Love to find creative ways to use leftovers rather than just having the same meal all over again. Thank you, Elise!!

    Elise – hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Love how easy and simple this recipe is, and a nice way to use up any leftover turkey while creating a whole new dish.

    This was quick, easy and great! I’ll probably be making it with leftover chicken on a regular basis.

    Elise, I’ve been making recipes from your site for over 5 years now (your mom’s stuffing was the first), and they have all been so solid! I know I never have to pre-test anything if I have folks coming over; it’s evident you’ve done all the testing out any cook would need. Thanks for all the work you put into this! :)
