Turkey (or Chicken) Parmesan Baked Rotini
In the microwave, scald
2 ½ cups whole milk
1 ½ cups turkey stock
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook together for 2 minutes
1/3 cup butter
3 tbsp flour
¼ tsp black pepper
½ tsp sea salt
Whisking constantly, slowly pour in scalded milk and turkey stock. Continue to cook for 2 more minutes stirring constantly. Stir in:
2 tbsp dry summer savory - Herbes de Provence would work well too
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
In salted boiling water, cook, just to al dente
3 cups uncooked rotini pasta
Drain and set aside.
3 cups leftover cooked turkey, cut in chunks
1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
3 cups grated low fat mozzarella cheese
1 cup chopped button mushrooms (optional)
1 large roasted red pepper, chopped (optional)
8 slices precooked bacon, cut in small pieces
Grease the bottom and sides of a large casserole dish. Place half of the cooked rotini pasta in the bottom of the dish. Layer the casserole with half the turkey, half the parmesan cheese, half the bacon, and half the sauce. Repeat these layers and top with the grated mozzarella cheese.
Bake for about 45 minutes to an hour or until the casserole is bubbling and the top is golden brown.
