You’ll need a big frying pan with deep sides or a casserole dish like the one I’m using for this recipe.

To begin, sauté some onion and garlic in a little amount of oil.

Combine the milk, chicken stock, and pasta in a large mixing bowl. I’m using parpadelle pasta, but any kind of pasta would do.

Bring to a boil, then reduce to a low heat for 6 minutes.

Simmer for another 6-8 minutes, until the pasta is done and most of the liquid has been absorbed, before adding the remaining turkey and ham, as well as some frozen peas.

SUBSTITUTIONS FOR Ingredients

I used chicken stock, but you may use vegetable stock instead.

If you can’t find crème fraiche, you may use cream cheese or some cream instead.

If you like, shredded cheddar cheese may be used instead of parmesan.
