Reviews for Creamy Turkey Tetrazzini
"Wonderful, great flavor! I used a store bought rotisserie chicken vs turkey and I didn't have pimentos. I also sauced the mushrooms in the butter just because I hadn't read recipe good enough at first but I will prob do that again cause I like my mushrooms well done. Also, used more like 1/2 c Parmesan vs 1/3. My husband loved it too. I will definitely be making it again!"
"I made this recipe exactly as specified, EXCEPT i only had ground turkey, not cubed. It turned out delicious. The sauce isn't a strong overpowering cheesy flavor, like those processed alfredo type of cream sauces. It is a mild creamy flavor with hints of delicious spices. In culinary class we learn that all ingredients should blend harmoniously together, and I think it did just that. If you like an extra kick, just add a bit more cayenne or hot pepper sauce. I added a bit of extra grated parm to my bowl (because i love cheese) and it was perfect! I will be making this a lot!"
"This is the first Taste of Home recipe that hasn't "wowed"--it was ok...just very bland. Nobody wanted seconds, so I was left with leftovers of the leftovers. However, the next day I added some bacon, onion, and bell pepper (along with a pepper spice blend) and ended up with an outstanding dish that was delicious!"
"this was really good, though I made it with chicken. I also didn't add hot sauce or pimento's since I don't care for them but thought it was very tasty. I've made it a few times already."
"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!"
