Smoked Turkey Breast Noodle Casserole

Smoked Turkey Breast Noodle Casserole - The Fall Season has finally arrived here in Northern California albeit a wee late ... The 90º to 100º weather we've been experiencing in the last few weeks has finally given way to mid 70º to low 80º weather. We all enjoy an Indian Summer but I've been ready for a long time to start enjoying the cooler weather that Fall offers.Time to start dusting off those sweats and cooking some good old fashioned comfort food.

I was searching on the internet for a way to use a leftover smoked turkey breast, from a previous turkey cook, in a casserole when I came upon a recipe at Campbell's Kitchen for a turkey noodle casserole. The posted casserole turned out to be similar to a classic tuna noodle casserole but uses turkey instead. Perfect foundation for my casserole. Took the basic concept of the recipe and added my personal touches to reflect my preferences and taste. I think you'll enjoy the resulting smoked turkey breast noodle casserole recipe.
