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.
