Turkey Tetrazzini Recipe

Turkey Tetrazzini Recipe

This recipe comes from a cookbook our church compiled. It's convenient because it can be made ahead and frozen. After the holidays, we use leftover turkey to prepare a meal for university students. They clean their plates! -Gladys Waldrop, Clavert City, Kentucky

"A perfect after thanksgiving meal! I added some fried onions on the top in the last 5 min of cooking and it was a nice finish. Also omitted the pimentos since I had none on hand, didn't miss them. Husband looooved this dish. Very easy to make!"

"We love this recipe. Used it for years. I put 2 cans cream of mushroom in it and little more milk for the right consistency. Never dry. Now my mom and dad want me making it for them also."

"I added fresh mushrooms instead of out of a jar, had no pimentos so I used a sweet red pepper instead of the green pepper to get the color. I used reduced fat cheese (2% cheese) My family really liked it. It tastes creamy and comforting without all the calories and fat. Serve it with a fresh green salad or something with a little crunch. I am definitely making it again. I like good recipes like this that are quick, easy, comforting and still not too high in fat and calories."

"I always make a recipe the way it is written the first time. And I was hesitant about the green pepper in it. I didn't have to worry as the green pepper doesn't overpower the casserole. It was really good. I might add some thinly sliced celery, if I have any around the next time I make this recipe. Was very good and will definitely make again."
