A great way to use up that leftover Christmas Turkey or Chicken. I used two methods of cooking, starting on top of the stove and finishing in the oven. While I used fresh pasta, you can use store bought as well. I have a new pasta machine I'm enjoying and must say it does make a nice difference. Hope you enjoy!
