Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 6


  • 3 T butter
  • 1/4 c AP flour
  • 1-1.5 c whole milk and/or half and half
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 medium carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 c mushrooms sliced or chopped
  • 1/4 c bell pepper any color, but we love red or yellow or orange
  • 2 c cooked turkey or chicken chopped
  • 1-2 c fresh broccoli chopped bite-size
  • 1 box noodles prepared according to instructions
  • 1.5 c shredded cheese We like a Mexican cheese blend. Cheddar tends to be oily.
  • pinch salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 t garlic powder to taste. I usually use a lot of garlic, fresh and powder.


  1. Boil noodles according to directions.
  2. Chop vegetables and saute in butter, but don't brown the onions.

  3. Sprinkle with flour and then immediately whisk in milk or half and half. It should thicken like white gravy. Add more liquid as needed. You can also add in some cheese for extra creaminess. Sometimes, I add the broccoli at this point to make things easy.

  4. Combine gravy and cooked noodles and other ingredients in a bowl.

  5. Spread in a large casserole dish. Sprinkle with cheese.
  6. Bake at 350* for 30-45 minutes, depending on how crispy you like the top.
