Reviews for Mom's Turkey Tetrazzini
"Wonderful flavor to this dish. However, if made as written, it's way too dry. I would recommend either doubling the sauce ingredients, or cutting in half the amount of pasta. I added chopped celery to it, which also gave it a great flavor. I will definitely make it again, next time with more sauce."
"My family loved this dish, Will definitely make it again!"
"A really good meal that was a hit with everyone in my family."
"Great and easy recipe. Next time I would make a little more of the the sauce. I also added broccoli which my daughter loved!"
