Excellent! I used an entire box of spaghetti-8 oz. I also used peas instead of pimentos, canned chicken broth and fat-free cream of celery soup instead of mushroom and skipped the celery salt. I just winged it on the amount of turkey I added as well. It was very creamy and tasty. I will be making this again and again.

I was browsing cooked turkey recipes to use up my left overs, and came across this recipe. So glad I did. I made it a one-dish meal (great for a weeknight) by adding about 10 oz of frozen green peas instead of the diced pimentos (and a little more turkey meat). To save on baking time, while the spaghetti was cooking, I sauteed the onions, then adding all ingredients (except spaghetti) to the sauteed onions. I then combined that hot mixture with the spaghetti in a buttered casserole, topped with the cheese and popped it in the oven for 25 minutes (bubbly). WONDERFUL creamy, cheesy. There were no leftovers.

yummy! so creamy and cheesy! this worked out great for me! i was looking for a quick and comforting pasta dish for my sick toddler. she was craving a creamy pasta with chicken, so i modified the recipe a bit for what i had on hand. i used cream of chicken instead of mushroom and a can of chicken in place of the turkey. i skipped the diced pimento and used minced onion flakes instead of the chopped onion! instead of the boiling water, i used a combination of sour cream, a tad bit of mayo and a splash milk to make it extra creamy! she loved this, and so did i! it actually reminded me a lot of the chicken tetrazzini that my mom used to make for me, minus the mushrooms! this will be something i make for my little one often! i will add more veggies to it next time, i just didn't have too much around or the time to be in the kitchen for very long!! thanks for sharing! this is a keeper!

This is a great tetrazzini recipe! I used rotisserie chicken, whole wheat pasta and sauteed the onions and added some yellow pepper to the saute with some evoo and didn't even bother with the bouillon cubes & water. I only had cream of celery soup so that's what I used. This is a quick delicious meal which is what I like!

Great weeknight meal! I added a cup of frozen peas, a can of mushrooms and cooked it all on the stovetop (skipping the oven all together) in order to feed us faster! It was great and a super way to use up some of that leftover turkey!

Ok, I admit it...sometimes I roast a turkey just so I can make this recipe the next day. :) It is totally awesome, and I didnt change a thing.

This was very good and I will be making it again with turkey leftovers. I used cooked, diced chicken breast meat, 3/4 cup chicken broth instead of the bouillon and water, regular salt in place of celery salt (didn't have any), and I omitted the pimento. I also used homemade noodles.
