Reviews for Creamy Chicken Tetrazzini Casserole
"Of the four of us, two were so-so and two really liked it. I'll probably make it again."
"This was so so so good. I would minus the almonds. Oh my word! Delightful. Definitely need to find a way to lighten it up. It's so fattening"
"This was very good!!! Definitely a comfort food!!! I basically made it as is, except that I didn't bother toasting the almonds beforehand; instead, I just went ahead and added all the toppings before baking the casserole for 25 minutes... I also left out the mushrooms due to our tastes, and used a bit more onion and celery to compensate for the mushroom's absence. My family LOVED it!!"
"I usually wait until somebody else has reviewed a recipe before i try it out...but in this case it just sounded so good i decided to go ahead and try it. It was a big hit! My husband said to keep this one handy! So i'll definitely be making this again soon! Thanks for submitting this one! It's great!"
