Easy Chicken Tetrazzini Recipe

This comforting casserole is made with leftover cooked chicken and canned soup. It's so easy to assemble. Once you pop the dish in the oven, you'll have some time to take care of other things.—Martha Sue Stroud, Clarksville, Texas

"I didn't have the onion, so added 2 stalks of celery diced, omitted the mushrooms, and used Mexican Style 4 cheese blend shredded cheese and it was wonderful! I also used whole wheat pasta. My husband loved it too!"

"I use cream of celery soup because I think it gives this casserole a more appealing color. I have made multiple pans for carry-in dinners and it always goes over well."
