Transcript:Turkey Tetrazzini

Hi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make turkey tetrazzini.

Turkey Tetrazzini Ingredients

For this recipe, you will need:
  • 10 oz. sliced mushrooms
  • 1 c. cooked peas
  • 5 tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 c. milk
  • 2 c. chicken broth
  • 1/4 c. dry white wine
  • 3 c. chopped cooked turkey
  • 2/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 c. bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • 10 oz. cooked spaghetti

Make the Cream Sauce

First pour 4 tbsp. of the butter into a heated saucepan. Once its started to melt, add the rinsed mushrooms. Cook and stir over a moderate heat, until most of the liquid they give off has evaporated. This will take about 7-10 minutes.

Stir in the flour and cook the mixture over low heat, and keep mixing for another 3 minutes.

Slowly add to the mushrooms the milk, the chicken broth, and the wine. Stir together and bring to a boil. Continue to stir and simmer the sauce for 5 minutes.

Assemble the Turkey Tetrazzini

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Also butter a shallow 3 qt. casserole dish.

Next, take your bowl with the spaghetti and ladle on the mushroom sauce. Next add the chopped turkey, the peas, and some salt and pepper. Mix these ingredients together. Then, add 1/3 of a cup of the Parmesan cheese and mix it in.

Now, pour the whole thing into the casserole dish. Top the dish with the rest of the Parmesan cheese, the bread crumbs and salt and pepper.

Bake the Turkey Tetrazzini

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. When it's done you'll see it has a nice crunchy top. I like using a pasta fork to help serve this creamy meal. Enjoy.
