    Good starter recipe, but to up the flavor, I add celery and mushrooms with the onion.

    This was really good and a great way to use up left over turkey!

    found this very tasteless. Ended up discarding the leftovers.

    Great dish! Look forward to making this with leftover Thanksgiving turkey every year! Only change I make is to double the mushrooms (& use gluten-free spaghetti if my daughter's dining with us--no one else ever notices). They are never any leftovers!

    This dish was so, so good! My husband and son really liked it. It was easy and also worked well as a leftover dish for lunch. I will definitely make this again.

    This is a very good lighter version of turkey tetrazzini. I followed what other reviewers said and added sage and used turkey breast that was well-seasoned. I also used 10 oz. of chicken broth and 4 1/2 oz of white wine. I also suggest breaking the spaghetti in half to aid in serving it. Bon appetit!

    I've been making turkey tetrazzini with leftover holiday turkey for years but having been looking for lighter versions of my favorites. This is an excellent lighter version of one of my favorites. Will be making this many times in the future!!!

    I, too, thought it could have used more flavor, could be it depends on how the turkey was cooked originally. I may try adding some sage next time. Also like the idea of adding veggies.
