1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup finely chopped celery
1 (10 3/4oz) can Healthy Request Cream of Chicken Soup
1/4 cup Land O Lakes no-fat sour cream
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1 3/4 cups (one 14 1/2-oz can) stewed tomatoes, chopped and undrained
1/3 cup (one 2.5-oz jar) sliced mushrooms, drained
2 cups hot cooked noodles, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups (8oz) diced cooked turkey breast
In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, saute green pepper, onion, and celery for 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in chicken soup, sour cream, Cajun seasoning, parsley flakes, and undrained stewed tomatoes. Add mushrooms, noodles and turkey. Mix well to combine. Lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes, or until mixture is heated through, stirring occasionally.

2. If you don't have leftovers, purchase a chunk of cooked turkey breast from your local deli.
