Kentucky Hot Brown Pasta Recipe

Derby Day is always held on the first Saturday of May. It seems everyone loves to find an excuse to have a party, so the famous horse race is celebrated all over the world. The mint julep is the official cocktail of the race, and there are Burgoo Cook-offs all over Kentucky. One of the most popular dishes to serve on Derby Day is the Hot Brown, a sandwich (which originated at the famous Brown Hotel in Louisville) served en casserole containing sliced turkey on toast which is covered with a creamy mornay sauce and topped with fresh sliced tomatoes and a crisscross of crisp bacon. The following Kentucky Hot Brown Pasta Bake combines the ingredients in the original Hot Brown with pasta a perfect dish for a crowd.
This casserole can be made ahead and refrigerated until ready to bake. The sauce is quick, since It starts with the versatile Basic Cream Soup Mix. Turkey is traditional, and if the Slow Cooker Turkey Breast Module is already in the freezer, preparation will be a snap. Otherwise, rotisserie chicken or leftover cooked chicken may be substituted for the turkey.

A serving note: Although it is traditional to serve the bacon in whole strips crisscrossed on top, it is easier to serve and eat if the bacon is crumbled over the tomatoes.
