Turkey Tetrazzini

8 ounces thin spaghetti
2 cups shredded cooked turkey
3 T. butter
8 ounces mushrooms, thickly sliced

½ cup diced green chiles
1 t. dried parsley or 1 T. fresh parsley, chopped
1 t. salt
½ t. black pepper
1 cup prepared stuffing (optional)

Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain. Grease a 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Add turkey to spaghetti and place in greased pan.

Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onion; cook until soft. Add half and half, cheese, chilies, parsley, salt and pepper. Heat through. Pour over noodles and turkey. Top with stuffing, if using (if not, cover with foil).

Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil, if using, and cook an additional 5 minutes to brown top of casserole.

Tip: Don't have any half and half on hand? Substitute 2 cups milk and add 1/4 cup flour to the onions and mushrooms at the end of sauteeing.
