    My husband and I love this dish. I make it with 2 cups of leftover turkey and 2 small or 1 medium onion. It's quick, delicious and filling.

    I really enjoyed this. I used chicken instead of turkey. Also, when I put the mushrooms in the pan I also added carmelized onions and red wine vinegar b/c I didn't have sherry. It made for a very good taste. Wonderful! Will make again.

    SO good!!!! Probably the best casserole I make regularly. Added about 2 TB of slivered almonds for crunch. Whole family, including 2 picky kids, loves it!

    It was a great recipe, although a little bland, so I added garlic, a red bell pepper, onion, twice as many peas, twice as much cheese, crushed red pepper, and a can of mushroom soup along with everything else the recipe called for. I would definitely make it again. It's easy to make and will be great leftover.

    This is one of my "freezer favorites". I make a triple recipe and freeze two of the pans. I use chicken or turkey, whichever is cheaper the day I'm buying. I've also omitted the Sherry if I don't have any on hand with no problems. I don't know if I'd classify this as a dish for company, but it's a great hearty meal in the winter or fall and relatively cheap to make.

    I thought was good, although a little bland in my opinion. Made the following changes: substituted a bone in honey brined turkey breast, (which I baked) for the turkey cutlets, used angel haor pasta instead of vermicelli, and greek yogurt in place of souir cream. Also used whole wheat panko breadcrumbs. I would make this again but will need to figure a little something extra to add to bring the flavors together.

    I used to have the Woman's Day Encyclopedia of Cookery until I moved and couldn't take it with me. Space issues. This was one of my favorite recipes and I have been looking for a similar one ever since. This is very close if not right on. Thanks so much!

    This recipe was fast and OK, not great. I definetly wouldnt use turkey cutlets again. Id bake chicken or turkey breast in the oven real fast or use already cooked meat. The sauce was way too thick I used 1 Cup 1% milk and it was still too thick after baking in the oven, or maybe it was just too much sauce...I added more peas (1Cup) and less mushrooms (1-1/2 packages). There was still a ton of mushrooms! I cant imagen using 2 whole pacakages. Id say one package is plenty. I also omitted the sherry because I didnt have any. After reheating, the sour cream broke a bit but not too much...

    I guess I probably should give it 4 stars, because for what it is...I think it's an excellent recipe. But I don't think I'd be serving this for a special occasion. This is a good, solid casserole that is family friendly. I didn't realize I was out of mushrooms until I had already started, but my fussy kids would prefer it that way anyway. My kids are not big casserole eaters, so the fact that they were interested in me making this again---says it all. It also does not taste light even if made exactly as written.

    This one is a favorite in my house. I make ahead when the baby is napping and leave it in the fridge until I'm ready to throw it in the oven. Though I don't make it for guests, I do serve it to the in-laws. We look forward to using turkey leftovers to make this dish

    This is just a good recipe. It is not great nor is it bad. The flavor and texture is reminiscent of everything you love about casseroles. The one thing that makes this a good but not a great recipe is the turkey and it's preparation. The cutlets, were too thin, dry and lacking in flavor. In the future I would maybe prepare the cutlets differently or even consider using a different meat.

    Thought this was a tasty weeknight meal. I served with blanched/sauteed green beans and garlic bread. This will go into may meal rotation.

    I added tyme, sub'd the turkey with chicken breasts, and broke the pasta in half before adding it to the water - I think this really helped for serving and eating.Since I don't care for mushrooms, I used more peas and added celery. Will make again.

    Definitely a little bland. I added extra onion powder, lots of sherry, and extra cheese. Much better with these additions.

    We don't eat many casseroles, because we generally don't like them. This was really good and I will definitely make it again. I did made a few substitutions: I used leftover turkey and regular spaghetti (broken in half). Also chopped scallions instead of onion powder, which I browned with the mushrooms, then added the sherry and cooked for about 4 minutes. Also, substituted half and half for the milk. When I mixed all the ingredients together in a bowl, I threw in about 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese for extra flavor. I topped the casserole with panko crumbs mixed with the butter. I think you can make this recipe your own in so many ways and I loved that you can make it ahead and cook when you are ready. Definitely not bland.

    Okay, leftovers were a bit better than original dish. This was a bit bland for my tastes, I don't normally salt at the table and I had to with this dish. I made it as is for the first time, I'll "spice" it up but will continue to use it as a "base" . I also used leftover holiday turkey for this in lieu of the chicken. I froze half of the recipe to make in the future- I'll comment on how it freezes when I pull it out and make it.

    Delicious. Very nice remake of a super fattening favorite. Didn't have sherry so I used a nice cab and it was delicious. Also used rigatoni as not a big fan of spaghetti.
