To die for delicious. I just cook for me, so I used a 9 x 6-1/4 casserole dish. I winged it with amounts. One thing I don't think it needed with the larger baking dish was 1/2 cup of flour. I only used 2 tbsp (whole wheat) and mine thickened perfectly. I think 3 Tbsp. would have worked perfectly for the 9 x 12. Along with the whole wheat flour, I used no salt added stock (16 oz.), a little dry white wine (I use vermouth), and added more pepper, a little fresh parsley and dried tarragon, and I used whole wheat linguine. Can't wait to have it again tonight. This will be my go-to recipe for tetrazzini from now on.

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.

Very yummy use of leftovers! I had cooked chicken in the freezer & extra multi-grain spaghetti noodles from last night. This was the perfect way to use them up. :) I did have a hard time getting my cream cheese to melt, it took a lot longer than 10 minutes to get this ready for the oven. Next time I'll break the cream cheese into even smaller pieces (this time it was 1/2" cubes) and keep the heat a little higher to make it go faster. Other than that, it was great. Thanks!

This was really good. I used fettuccini instead of spaghetti, but otherwise I did it all the same. Great recipe! Thanks!

Great recipe Charmie using things I always have around. I haven't had tetrazzini in years and it was Dugan's first time. I was looking forward to leftovers but he raided the fridge for a late night snack and ate it. Grrr.

I had made a beer can chicken earlier in the week and needed to use up the leftover chicken, so I decided to make this for dinner. This was delicious!!! I didn't use the celery as son doesn't like it. I used fresh baby portabella sliced mushrooms and sauteed them with the onion and did add some minced garlic. My son went back for seconds. Thanks for posting a great recipe!!!

We went wild over this the first night and the kids visiting the next day went nuts over it again. All I added was fresh mushrooms sauted in garlic and some parsley. A keeper. Thanks Charmie.
