"Turkey leftovers turn into a quick and creamy Italian meal with a rich Alfredo sauce and tortellini. Great with crusty Italian bread and a salad."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

prepared Alfredo sauce
salt and pepper to taste
cubed cooked turkey

Great way to use leftover turkey or roasted chicken. To lower calorie count I used equal parts fat free half and half, and 1% milk. To make it creamier I increased the fluid to equal 1/2 cup. Also used light Alfredo sauce. I used 6 cloves of crushed garlic to heighten the flavor. With the extra fluid it can be made ahead of time, refrigerated, and cooked later without drying out. Next time I will try spinach tortellini for a different flavor. This will definitely be a recipe called upon when leftovers are abundant.
Great recipe! I didn't have tortellini but I did have a box of bow tie pasta. I also added a bag of frozen peas and carrots. We all loved it, including my 3 year old grand daughter! This one is a keeper!
Everyone in the house loved this recipe. It's quick and easy. The packaging of the tortellini I bought was bigger than the recipe called for but the sauce mixture covered it just fine. I used Parmesan cheese only on top and skipped the mozzarella and it tasted great! I followed the recipe otherwise and it turned out fantastic. I'm sure I will use chicken and other pasta in the future if the need arises. I'm kind of looking forward to that!
Love this recipe! I typically double the recipe and have used either leftover turkey or chicken. I also add an onion, cooked prior in butter.
Loved everything about this. This is my second time making it. I can't eat a lot of dairy so I cut the cheese down to half the amount and used almond milk this time around. I also had 2 packages of tortellini and used them before they went bad and used ground turkey. This is Fantastic as is and just as great with the tweeks I made.
Made this tonight with chicken instead of turkey and it was amazing!
