Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet, add the turkey, and cook for one to two minutes or until browned. Set the turkey aside in a bowl.

Add 2 tablespoons butter to the skillet, and saute 8 ounces mushrooms and 1 tablespoon chopped thyme. Remove these ingredients from the skillet, and add to the skillet an additional 3 tablespoons butter. Whisk in 3 tablespoons flour, and cook for one minute. Add 2 cups milk, and bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer for two to three minutes before stirring in 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and 1 cup frozen peas and carrots.

Combine the pasta, cooked turkey, mushrooms and the sauce in a greased baking dish. Sprinkle with an additional 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
