Turkey Tetrazzini

Precooked turkey, pasta and vegetables are baked in a creamy cheese sauce.

The days after a big holiday feast of turkey and all the trimmings may find you wondering what to do with the leftovers. There’s turkey sandwiches, turkey soup, warmed over sliced turkey and cranberry sauce etc… But if you’re looking for a total overhaul on turkey leftovers you’ll want to try this super delicious one dish meal.

You may be surprised to learn that this is not a traditional Italian dish but rather one inspired by a Florentine opera star of the early 1900s. Tetrazzini: The diva who inspired top chefs. Another variation on this recipe is Chicken Tetrazzini.
