  • Summary

    This easy Turkey Tetrazzini is a classic family recipe! This is the best way to use leftover Turkey from Thanksgiving but is also great made as Chicken Tetrazzini. It's creamy but still light and delicious- the ultimate comfort food!

    Ingredients

    • 8 ounces spaghetti
    • 1/4 cup butter ((the original recipe called for margarine, but I prefer butter))
    • 2 Tablespoons flour
    • 2 cups chicken broth
    • 3/4 cup half and half
    • 1-3 Tablespoons Sherry wine ((optional))
    • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, (chopped + some extra for garnish if desired)
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1 dash ground black pepper
    • 3 cups cooked turkey meat, (cooked and cubed (or you can use chicken))
    • 4 ounces fresh sliced mushrooms ((the original recipe called for a 4.5 ounce jar of mushrooms but I prefer fresh))
    • 1/2 cup Romano or Parmesan cheese, (grated)
