It's the day after Thanksgiving and your fridge is bursting with turkey leftovers. That's perfect, because our recipe for Tempting Turkey Tetrazzini calls for just that: leftover turkey! This easy casserole recipe is a simple way to use up leftovers and surprise people around the dinner table with something delicious. Just like Thanksgiving dinner, everyone will want "just one more bite" after their plates are clean.
What You'll Need
- 12 ounces uncooked spaghetti
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cups milk
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 cup dry white wine or water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 cups coarsely chopped cooked turkey breast (about 1 pound) (see Tip)
- 1/4 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain and set aside.
- Meanwhile, in a soup pot over medium-high heat, bring broth to a boil. Stir in mushrooms and cook 3 minutes. Stir in milk.
- In a small cup, combine cornstarch and wine, and stir until smooth; slowly pour into mushroom mixture and cook until slightly thickened, stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat and stir in salt, pepper, and turkey. Add spaghetti and toss until well coated. Spoon spaghetti mixture into baking dish and sprinkle evenly with bread crumbs.
- Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.
Mr. Food Test Kitchen Tip!
- Don't think that you have to roast a whole turkey to get the cooked turkey to make this. Simply buy a 1-pound chunk in the deli and cut it up yourself.
