KristineDinner in a Dash, Gluten Free, Recipes5 Comments

A great way to use your leftover turkey and veggies, especially after the holidays!  This healthy turkey casserole can be used with any leftover veggies you have, or anything else you might have in the fridge. Sort of an “everything but the kitchen sink” sort of casserole.
