Light Chicken Tetrazzini

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 12 mins

This came from Cooking Light as a Turkey Tetrazzini, but I used leftover chicken which worked well. Very creamy and yummy! This can be made ahead and refrigerated--just bake before you're ready to serve. It makes 6 very generous servings.

Pretty good overall; I used reduced fat sour cream because I can't bear the sugary taste of fat-free. Made a very nice casserole - definitely something to make at night then throw it in the oven for dinner the next day.
