Turkey Spaghetti with Cream Sauce
When you see spaghetti with cream sauce, turkey is not the first protein you think about. Wherever you use chicken, you can almost always substitute turkey. Give this pasta a try. I think you will add it to your leftover recipes.

8 ounces sliced mushrooms
4 cloves garlic, minced
