I made a half batch and it was great!! I added some green peppers and onion. With chicken broth and cream, how can you go wrong? Thanks for sharing.
So simple, yet so delicious! I froze half as it made a huge batch - but I've had constant cravings for this recipe and it's a keeper!
This is the best tetrazzini recipe! It is a favorite for family gatherings. The only changes I make is that I use chicken and mushrooms in a jar.
This had a great flavor and was filling! I skipped the mushrooms and pimientos. The cayenne pepper was good and I added Red Hot instead of the hot pepper sauce. The husband said it was awesome!
I make this every year after thanksgiving. it freezes beautifully. I omit the mushrooms-but otherwise leave the rest as is. Can be made easily in two pans and any fun shaped pasta can be subbed.
