Ham Tetrazzini

Recipe by Weeezer0421

This recipe is rich and filling. I've tried so many tetrazzini recipes and this one so far is our favorite. Hope you give it a try and enjoy it! You may also substitute chicken or turkey in place of the ham.

This recipe was excellent! I just made a few of modifications to it though. I added low sodium broth since ham tends to be a bit salty anyway. I added 1 heaping tsp. minced garlic when sauteing the onions & mushrooms. I added 1 c. petite green peas when adding the sauce, ham & pimentos. And lastly, I didn't have any breadcrumbs in my pantry, so I cubed 4-5 slices of bread (heels/ends work best) and tossed with 1/2 stick melted butter and sprinkled over top with the parmesan cheese. I will definately make this again! Thanks Weeezer0421!
