This tetrazzini is made extra creamy by using cream cheese!!! I love this with leftover turkey from the holidays!

I made this for a holiday potluck luncheon and it got raves from everyone. I added a little extra celery and used unsalted chicken stock but otherwise followed the recipe. I was wondering if anyone had tried it using some white wine - thinking I'll do that when I make it next time.

Great recipe to use up leftover turkey. Very easy to throw together. I'll be using this over again at Thanksgiving.

a very flavorful and suprisingly elegant recipe - and easy to prepare...while the fettucine was cooking, i sauteed a chicken breast in butter for ten minutes. putting the breast on a cutting board and adding a little additional butter to the drippings, i sauteed double onions (no celery for me) for five minutes; then, in the same skillet, i sauteed fresh, sliced mushrooms until they gave up their juices. the balance of the preparation was per the directions. and was it good.
