Ingredients
  Turkey 20 Pound, roasted and cooled (Including Giblets)
  Water 4 Cup (64 tbs) (As Required)
  Salt To Taste
  Butter/Margarine 1⁄4 Pound (1/2 Cup)
  Onion 1 Large, finely chopped
  Finely chopped parsley 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Unsifted all purpose flour 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Chicken broth/Turkey broth 2 Quart (Canned / Freshly Made, 8 Cups)
  Light cream 1 Quart (4 Cups)
  Dry white table wine/Light cream 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Canned mushroom pieces 16 Ounce, drained (2 Cans Of 8 Ounce Each)
  Shredded parmesan cheese 1 1⁄2 Pound (6 Cups)
  Spaghetti/Tagliarini 2 Pound, boiled and hot
Directions

Peel skin from roasted turkey and strip meat from bones.
Cut meat in slivers and set aside.
If you wish, make turkey broth by boiling bones and skin in 2 quarts water seasoned with 2 teaspoons salt.
Pour through wire strainer and reserve; discard bones and skin.
In a large pan (at least 8-quart size for sauce alone, or twice as big to hold turkey and noodles, too) melt butter and add onion and parsley; cook until vegetables are limp.
Blend in the flour and gradually add the broth, cream, and wine.
Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
Stir in the mushrooms and 3 cups of the cheese.
(You can make the sauce a day ahead and chill, covered; reheat before using.) Add turkey and noodles to hot sauce and mix well.
Season to taste with salt; if you used the broth made from the turkey bones seasoned with 2 teaspoons salt, you may need 1 to 2 additional teaspoons salt.
Divide the turkey mixture among 2 or 3 large baking pans (such as the bottoms of broiler pans).
Sprinkle the tops of the casseroles evenly with remaining 3 cups of cheese.
Bake in a hot oven (400°) for 20 to 25 minutes, or until bubbling and top is lightly browned.
Makes about 8 quarts, 30 to 35 servings.
