Rich Cashew Turkey Casserole

Martha Price


Warning: this is a rich dish! But it is also easy and tasty, and a good way to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey. I usually serve this with rice or noodles to soak up the sauce, a green salad, rolls and a light dessert, such as sherbet. I hope you enjoy!
