Turkey Tetrazzini

Recipe by Sandaidh

Another favorite from The Encyclopedia of Creative Cooking edited by Charlotte Turgeon. This is a good recipe use up, or stretch, that left over turkey. It's a good make-ahead dish too, as you can put it in the fridge and then cook it later that day, or the next. This last time that I made it, I was unable to get the sherry called for by the recipe. I substituted a rose, and while the taste was a little different, it worked just fine.

I had some leftover turkey to use up and tried this recipe out. The flavor was very good. I made it "as is" except added a chopped onion that I sauted along with the mushrooms. If you make ahead and refridgerate be sure to add more heating time, I pulled ours out a little early and the dish should have been hotter. I served this with peas and since I'm a food mixer it all got mixed together. It's a keeper!
