Chicken or Turkey Tetrazzini

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by gailanng

Sometimes we just need simple. Good use for leftovers, kid friendly, fast and easy, freezable and delicious. Beat that. (Note: Can sub tuna, drained.) Oh, don't leave out the parmesan. It makes the dish.

We loved this! I used chicken and reduced fat cheeses, sauteed the onions and peppers, and included the optional mushrooms and bacon. It was so easy, warming, and filling. Thanks for sharing!
