This casserole is an American pasta dish that includes a cream sauce, mushrooms, and either chicken, turkey, you can use seafood. It is thought to have been invented in San Francisco and named after the famous opera singer of the early 1900s, Luisa Tetrazzini. A great dish to make using Thanksgiving leftovers. A very flexible dish using what leftovers you have.

I forgot to write a review of this! It's great. I used dry white wine and, I hate to admit, a dry mix turkey gravy from grocery aisle. But this is a great recipe that freezes well, too. We really liked this and I'll make it again.
