Turkey Tetrazzini

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 hot and hearty casserole. A fine way to use up some turkey. Just a matter of personal preference, my family has become more and more not a fan of canned soup mix sauce bases. This is not something I would go out of the way to make as a special recipe but if I find I need to use up some turkey and have the other ingredients on hand...then this is perfectly good. I have known other people that have made this with peas instead of green pepper. The cheese did certainly add to the dish.

    Great way to use up leftover turkey! I had alot more than 2 cups of turkey, so adjusted other ingredients accordingly. I don't use canned mushrooms and didn't have any fresh so just omitted them, although next time I will definitely make sure I have some on hand and I did add some grated parmesan into the casserole. Don't skip the additional shredded cheddar on top. Great dish, will definitely make again!

    I used this recipe to use up the last of the leftover turkey. One comment I heard was the cheese made the dish. It was an easy meal to put together. I had to double the recipe for our family size and I used one can of the cream of mushroom and one can of cheddar soup. It was good.

    It was bery good and easy to do. I also used 2 cans of soup and a little more milk. Next time I am going to cook the onion and green pepper a little bit.

    Really good and simple recipe. I saute'd the bell pepper, some celery and onion and added to the mix. I also sprinkled parmesan cheese on top. Tasted great.

    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!

    This recipe was good but a little dry. 375 maybe to high. Good will try 2 cans of cream of mushroom next time. Will use this again. Smelled really good.
