Creamed Spinach Turkey Pasta #SundaySupper

creamed Spinach Turkey Pasta

Creamed Spinach Turkey Pasta transforms Thanksgiving leftovers into a quick skillet dish.

It’s the day after Thanksgiving. Another holiday meal under your belt. 😉

I’d spent days of preparing ahead for the big meal. I’d bake pies and cookies, make creamy fudge and pretzels in chocolate. Relish trays with pickles, olives, deviled eggs and assorted fruit, cheese and veggies for before dinner picking. Thanksgiving seemed to be over in a blink of an eye.

Except for those leftovers! Who wants the same stuff for days?

Creamed Spinach Turkey Pasta

This week the Sunday Supper Tastemakers are here to help. Thank you Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventure for hosting this event!

Turkey is the easiest leftover to switch into new recipes. We also like to snack on it just so. My dilemma comes when I only have a bit of mashed potatoes. a few glazed sweet potatoes and a few servings of veggies.

One easy recipe for using extra turkey and creamed spinach works every time! I add noodles and make a fast, easy skillet dinner. I’m including my recipe for creamed spinach just in case it’s not a feature on your dinner table.
