Comfort foods? Creamy, flavorful, mouth pleasing casseroles top the list for me. Not eating pasta of any type (and losing 74 lb in 7 months) has made me creative. I use Miracle Noodles. They are Shiratake noodles and can be purchased in Asian specialty shops.
1Brush 9 x 13” casserole dish with a bit of melted butter. Sauté sliced onion in 1 tablespoon melted butter till tender and light golden edges. Place onions in casserole. Add 3 tablespoons melted butter to sauté pan and add 3 tablespoons flour. Stir until well blended. If you’d prefer, make the roux pale gold. Add seasonings to roux.
2Add 1 cup ½ and ½ or milk and 1 cup heavy cream blending until creamy and thickened.
3Place turkey and diced grilled peppers in the casserole. Add the shiratake (Miracle) noodles. (Cut the noodles up with scissors to 3 or 4 inch length).
4Pour cream mixture over all and stir well. Pour 1 cup Panko into remaining butter, mix well and spread over casserole. Bake casserole 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool a bit before serving. Sprinkle with freshly minced parsley.
