Quick Fix

Turn leftover turkey into flavorful skillet dinner

MCT — This is a great way to serve leftover turkey. It’s a one-pot meal — a hearty casserole with turkey, mushrooms and pasta with a light touch.

The pasta cooks right in the sauce. Serve it in the casserole dish right from the stove. All you need is a tossed salad to complete the meal. Add any leftover vegetables you have on hand to the salad.

You can also use cooked turkey from the deli. Look for low-sodium roasted turkey breast, and ask for it to be cut in one thick piece. It will be easier to cut into bite-size pieces.

Complete the meal:

Toss 4 cups ready-to-eat salad greens with 2 tablespoons reduced-fat vinaigrette.

This meal contains 522 calories with 20 percent of calories from fat.

Wine suggestion:

A rich and hearty California chardonnay is a good match.
