This made a great supper to use leftover smoked turkey! You'll have to forgive that I left out the mushrooms; my husband won't eat them. I made as is, even had the heavy cream for once. I did add some onion and garlic which I sauteed in the butter before adding flour. Delicious!

Although I have nothing against cream of _____ soup, I picked this recipe because didn't have the canned soup as a base and I'm glad I did. I cut the recipe in half for the two of us but followed the directions as printed with the addition of a little garlic and black pepper. The only change I'll make the next time I make this is to use a little more evaporated milk to make it a bit creamier but that's a personal preference and doesn't reflect on the recipe at all.

This is an outstanding recipe for Turkey Tetrazzini! Don't let the white sauce scare you - it's a much better outcome than a "cream-of-soup" recipe. I used 1% milk instead of heavy cream as that's what I had and I didn't notice much difference. Don't leave out the wine either as it's yummy in the sauce! I used half the pasta (8 oz) as we like ours nice and saucy. Used an 8x8 casserole dish for the 3 of us and I still have enough for another meal for 3.

Tweeked the recipe a little. Used an entire can of evaporated milk , extra parmasean cheese, and added chopped onion with the mushrooms and garlice clove sauteed together and peas for color, Salt and pepper as well. I used dry sherry in place of the wine. came out excellent. Will make it again next week to use up all my turkey. Delicious !!

Excellent recipe! I made only a few minor changes and it was delicious. Used canned mushrooms as hubby hates mushrooms and canned don't impart as much mushroom flavor. Diced up some onion, red bell pepper, and celery and sauteed in some of the butter. Melted the rest of the butter in the pan, sprinkled the flour in and proceeded with the sauce. I used dry sherry for the wine. So good!

Great recipe! Tweaked it a bit, since I didn't have heavy cream on hand. Used 1/2 & 1/2 and 2% milk to equal the 1 cup of heavy cream. Also added a bit more wine. Also added a bit more parmesan with the breadcrumb topping. Came out great, every one loved it. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe was delicious. I made it with evaporated milk rather than cream. I think it could have used a little more sauce, as my family commented that it needed more. It had wonderful flavor and since I used broth made from the leftover turkey bones, and leftover turkey, there was a hint of the seasoning from the turkey stuffing. So yummy!

Yummy! And like my memories from my mother's T-giving leftovers. I broke the spaghetti short for ease, and used a bit of garlic powder and black pepper to taste plus little portabellos and blanched green beans I had left over, too. I ground dry stuffing cubes as bread crumb topping, and added more nutmeg to the sauce. Gentle but classic, delicious flavors.
