Potluck Chicken Tetrazzini

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Manami

The original dish was created in 1908 in San Francisco in honor of opera star Luisa Tetrazzini. There is a cooling and standing time of a total of 10 minutes. This was found in Better Homes and Gardens, May 2007 edition. This is so delicious and such great comfort food! Use both red & yellow peppers, they make it taste wonderful!

Soooo good! I also did not use the bread crumb topping, but will try it next time. I added a chopped shallot with the peppers and mushrooms. Next time I am going to add peas, too. My family voted this one a keeper!
