Ingredients

  • 8 oz spaghetti uncooked
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion diced
  • 1-2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups turkey stock or chicken
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 3/4 cups Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
  • 2 cups cooked turkey chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x9 baking dish.
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and place back in the pot.
  • Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, saute onions until tender 5-10 minutes. Add the garlic and saute another minute or two. Add the butter to the pan, once melted whisk in the flour, and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in the turkey stock, milk, nutmeg, pepper, and salt. Cook and whisk until it comes to a boil and starts to thicken. Stir in 1 1/4 cups of Parmesan cheese and remove from the heat.
