Turkey Tetrazzini

Turkey Tetrazzini Recipe

I think this recipe could possibly be the perfect reason to roast a turkey, if for nothing but the leftovers to utilize in this scrumptious casserole. The roast turkey is cradled with a delicious rich and creamy sauce, bits of gorgeous sauteed vegetables, lengths of pasta as well as tons of Parmesan cheese. Just how can any one resist that?

Due to the fact all the elements are already cooked, you are able to change the baking dish to serve your preferences. Baking basically warms everything through as well as permits the flavors to mingle, and thickens the sauce. If you wish a looser sauce, cook just till the parmesan cheese turns golden. For a tighter sauce, bake it for a longer time. So you're able to double or halve this recipe with no trouble, or utilize ramekins or individual souffle dishes if you feel like it. Whatever rocks your boat and hits your fancy!

•1 (16 oz) package raw pasta
