Directions

  1. Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil, stir in the tortellini, bring back to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer the tortellini until they're cooked but not completely tender, about 5 minutes. Drain the tortellini in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 1 1/2-quart oval baking dish.
  3. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the Alfredo sauce and milk; season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-low heat. Stir in the the tortellini and turkey, mixing just enough to coat the pasta and turkey with the sauce. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking dish, and sprinkle the top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the casserole is hot and bubbling and the cheese topping has melted and begun to brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

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!

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.
