"Reminds me of chicken Fettucine. Next time I will add more seasoning such as red pepper flakes. I saut?ed onion, carrot, red pepper, garlic cloves, and celery in butter then made the white sauce with soup, cream, and cheese. I added some chicken stock as the sauce seemed too thick. Then topped it with the mozzarella and paprika."

"I have another Tetrazzini recipe that I cut out of Taste of Home YEARS ago that was good, but not great. It's like someone took that old recipe, revamped it and this was the result. This was SO much creamier and more flavorful - and it was even better the next day. I was skeptical about not mixing the pasta with the sauce before putting it in the oven, but it turned out perfect. I thought it needed some color, so I took a large red bell pepper and "roasted" it over an open flame, wiped off the charred skin, chopped it up and added it to the sauce. I think it worked out very well. I also used 8 oz. of mushrooms just because I love them. This is definitely a keeper. So glad I ran across it!"

"Note that this recipe uses on a 7oz package of pasta! I made the mistake of using a one pound box. However, even with the error, this was a wonderful, hearty dinner! Enjoyed by all and plan on making it correctly next time!"

"This was a great recipe. I used leftover roasted chicken instead of turkey. Cooked it on convection at 350 and the cheese really crisped up on top which was delicious!"
