    breezermom's Note:

    This recipe came from Southern Living, way back in 1987. This is my favorite tetrazzini recipe. A great way to use up leftover chicken or turkey. Also, I often find myself with extra pasta...this is a great way to use that up as well!

      My bf and I very much enjoyed this. I used the thin spaghetti. Instead of the wine/sherry, I used apple juice. I also added some peas to this as well. I completely forgot to toast the almonds, but it was still good and like the cruch it brought. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will definately use it again.

      I sauteed some onions since I did not have bell pepper, and added some peas along with the mushrooms. I ended up having to use red wine. I left the cheddar off of the top, and left out the Parmesan since I had none. It turned out very good. I would make this again.

      I would give this 5 stars but I did some major subbing LOL I used a whole wheat linguine, orange bell pepper, skipped the pimento, used a mix of heavy cream and light cream instead of the canned soup and fresh mushrooms instead of canned but other then that everything was the same. All the flavours were subtle but oh so yummy. It was creamy and cheesy and I LOVED the crunch of the almonds which I put on about halfway thru the baking ( I find they burn otherwise) Made for Everyday is a Holiday and a keeper
