Transform leftover holiday roast turkey or chicken into a comforting creamy pasta with this no-fuss recipe.

TipsAlthough this recipe is a great way to use up leftover turkey or chicken, if you have none on hand, buy pre-cooked chicken strips or a rotisserie chicken to use instead.
 For a bright flavour addition, add some finely grated lemon zest along with the Parmesan cheese.
 For a more adult version, add a splash of white wine to the mushrooms before stirring in the milk mixture.
