Turkey Tetrazzini

We recently had a winter storm come through our area, and I couldn’t find any meats in the supermarket. I was left to defrost a turkey I had gotten on sale during the Christmas holiday.

There were some turkey leftovers, and I had the best recipe in mind, TURKEY TETRAZZINI! You can do anything to this casserole dish and come out a winner. I love using white wine or heavy cream, but I have used different broths, sour cream, cream cheese, and it has always been a family hit.

This is baked ar 350 for 35 minutes. I wanted it darker but you can serve it just like this.

This recipe has had to be tweaked due to a younger child deciding not to eat sweet peas lately, but I pulled off a great Kid Tested Mother Approved Recipe that was another weekday dinner success.

I took the aluminum foil off and cooked for an extra 10 minutes to get the cheese darker. I love when my cheese has those brown spots.

You can use more turkey if you like, I didn’t have more than 4 cups, I love to have every bite with meat and veggies. They soak up the cream and you are left with delectable goodness.

See how the casserole is still moist and the cheese has melted beautifully? This is true comfort food.
