Thanksgiving Recipe Share: Turkey Tetrazzini
Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Each week prior to Thanksgiving, I’ll share one of my family favorite Thanksgiving recipes.
I would love to hear your suggestions because we all could do with a few more great recipes to follow! Add your recipe in the “Comments” section below to be shared the following week.
Ah, what to do with the leftovers? I found this amazing recipe about six years ago and have made it every “after” Thanksgiving since. It is so easy and so very delish! The perfect recipe to use up any extra turkey you have from the big day.
- 1 (16 ounce) package uncooked spaghetti
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 2 cups milk
- 1 2/3 cups grated Parmesan cheese
- 4 cups chopped cooked turkey
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking dish.
- Cook spaghetti in lightly salted water for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and place in the prepared baking dish.
- Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour. Mix in chicken broth and milk. Cook and stir until the mixture comes to a boil (your basic roux sauce). Stir in about 1 1/3 cups Parmesan cheese, and remove from heat.
- Mix chicken broth mixture and turkey with spaghetti. Top with remaining cheese. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, until surface is lightly browned.
I serve mine with a nice hot, crusty french loaf. YUM!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you have enjoyed this little recipe series! I may do the same for the upcoming holiday season recipe faves 🙂
