Our original spinach casserole calls for turkey breast tenderloins, but feel free to use leftover turkey as the protein in this cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Casserole recipe.

We really enjoyed this. It was easy to make, very tasty and easy to adapt. I did add some salt and pepper and red pepper flakes, and added some garlic to the turkey/vegetable sauté. I also sautéed the turkey separately from the vegetables to keep the pan from being overcrowded. I did turn the oven to 375º after adding the breadcrumbs to make sure they were browned. Next time, I might consider using marinated artichoke hearts, drained, for more flavor. This made more than enough for the family, and everyone enjoyed it.

My family & I really enjoyed this recipe. A few changes I would make.. add some kind of spice whether it be simple salt & pepper or something a little more spicy such as red pepper flakes but I think the recipe needs a little "pzazz" to it. Also, I don't cook often so this may just be a learn as you grow kind of situation but the turkey ended up overcooking a bit. Next time I might boil the turkey most of the way to keep it tender and simultaneously allow the onions & red pepper to cook and then add the turkey towards the end to saute it for flavor. I may up the recipe by half as well since it wasn't enough for my family of 5 but if you have a good side dish (not sure what side dish goes with casserole but again, I don't cook often--we had a loaf of fresh french bread and it helped but still wasn't enough) then you should be fine. Or if you have a family with small children--we're all over the age of 20 so our portions are a bit bigger. I think next time if I up the recipe then I will add additional vegetables such as broccoli or squash. Either way, this recipe is worth making and the lucky thing about a recipe is.. you can change it any way you want. Enjoy!
