    I adapted a recipe from Jackie Olden's "Can We Cook" book. This is a delicious dish and fancy enough to serve at a dinner party. My family loves this dish. Definitely not a low fat recipe.

      I'm in love! Why in the world have I NEVER made tetrazzini before? To think I've lived to be 50 years old and not have tasted something this good. I really need to have my head examined! I added 5 or 6 cloves of garlic which really kicked it up a notch I think, also a healthy pinch of crushed thyme. Yummy-ola! *Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap Sept 07*

      I will admit, I cheated and used milk instead of the cream. Just couldn't bring myself to add all that fat. It was still very rich tasting. My husband really liked it, so it's a keeper. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag game. :)

      Oh heaven! If you love garlic, add about 4 more cloves. I took Debber's advice and also added a tsp. of crushed thyme. I had to experiment to lower the fat and calorie content, so used fat-free half&half and it was perfect! I can't imagine how much richer it would be using cream. I also added a tsp. of garlic powder to the grated cheese topping and used whole wheat spaghetti. A bit time consuming, but worth every luscious bite. Thanks diner!
