Easy Turkey Tetrazzini

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Kaarin

This recipe is different because it's sooo very creamy! It's easy, fast and makes my kids ask for more! Chicken can be used in place of the turkey, and you can substitute 2 small cans of chopped mushrooms for the fresh. This is great taste for very little work!

Really tasty! I was looking for a recipe to use up some leftover turkey and this one looked really simple and more healthy than some of the other ones out there. I did alter quite a few things and it still came out great! I subbed plain yogurt for 1/2 of the sour cream (I am really getting into adding yogurt instead of sour cream because I don't really notice the difference and it is so much better for you), added an extra 4-6oz of spaghetti, put in about 1 1/2 cups of leftover roasted carrots from the turkey dinner, and added 1/4 tsp of ground cayenne pepper and 1/4 tsp of season salt for extra zing. I also separated this out into 2 dishes (filled up 2 8x8 glass pyrex dishes just right) so I could add 1/2 bag of peas and 1/4 tsp more cayenne to the DH's batch. Then I put a little shredded cheddar on top of both and cooked as directed. Will be adding this to my list of go-to recipes for sure!
