   Cream Sauce


Preheat oven to 375° F. For the cream sauce, scald the cream with the onions, parsley, bay leaf and clove; strain. Melt the butter in a pan; stir in the flour to make a roux. Cook briefly, then whisk in the cream mixture. Simmer for 3 minutes or until thickened; season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Add turkey, spaghetti and mushrooms to cream sauce and stir to combine. Place mixture in a greased 8x8-inch or similar sized baking dish. Mix together the bread crumbs and melted butter. Sprinkle on the top of the casserole and repeat with the Parmesan cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes or until topping has browned and mixture is bubbling. Serve immediately.
