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.
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.
