Turkey Tetrazzini

This is one of my favorite dishes for leftover turkey! I had my hear set on making it, until I opened up the fridge and found that my family had eaten all the turkey!! When does that ever happen?? Luckily it tastes just a delicious with chicken and there are no leftovers of dinner either.  The family loved it!
Turkey (or Chicken) Tetrazzini
8 oz. spaghetti broken into pieces
5 Tablespoons butter
6 Tablespoons flour
3 cups chicken or turkey broth
1 cup cream (or milk)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup fresh or canned mushrooms
2-3 cups cooked turkey or chicken, cubed
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Cook spaghetti until just tender, drain and set aside.  Melt butter, blend in flour.  Stir in broth. Add cream, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens.  Add drained spaghetti, mushrooms, turkey or chicken and stir to combine.  Stir in the Parmesan cheese.  Pour into a 9 x 13 casserole dish; sprinkle with the shredded cheddar cheese.
  Bake uncovered ar 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly and lightly browned.
