    kevin4201's Note:

    This is the number one most requested dish at my house. Even my picky pre-teen daughters love this. Legend has it that this dish is named after a nineteenth century opera singer, Luisa Tetrazzini. This dish MUST be made a day in advance.

      This went over big here too,with one exception. We all thought it was a tad too salty. Next time I'll reduce the onion/celery salt combo. Thanks!

      Our family loved this! I have made 5 or 6 different tetrazzini recipes (all from scratch, no cream of crap soup allowed) and this was by far the best! I too added mushroom and pimentoes to the chicken mixture. This will go into our rotation menu! Thanks for posting!

      This is it! The taste I have been looking for in Tetrazzini! Of course, I didn't follow the recipe exactly (hardly ever do). I didn't use the onion and celery salt-I used chopped onion and celery and sauteed them a little. I also added some canned mushrooms. The rest of the recipe was followed exactly, except that I added 2 TBSP of sherry (it's just not tetrazzini without sherry to me) and put breadcrumbs and daubed butter on the top before baking. And it was perfect! I will definately be making this one again and again!
