Low Carb Tetrazinni (almost no carb!)

Judith Sheppard


Comfort foods? Creamy, flavorful, mouth pleasing casseroles top the list for me. Not eating pasta of any type (and losing 74 lb in 7 months) has made me creative. I use Miracle Noodles. They are Shiratake noodles and can be purchased in Asian specialty shops.

pinch tips: How to Mince Garlic





25 Min


30 Min


1 lb
cubed chicken or turkey
1 stick
butter, melted
1 large
onion, sliced
4 large
grilled sweet red peppers (from a jar), diced
2 c
broth (can use the carcass to render broth)
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
pepper (prefer white but black is fine)
1 c
heavy cream or 1/2 'n 1/2
1/2 tsp
ground thyme and dried sage
1 c
fresh parsley (optional) for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

Brush 9 x 13” casserole dish with a bit of melted butter. Sauté sliced onion in 1 tablespoon melted butter till tender and light golden edges. Place onions in casserole. Add 3 tablespoons melted butter to sauté pan and add 3 tablespoons flour. Stir until well blended. If you’d prefer, make the roux pale gold. Add seasonings to roux.
Add 1 cup ½ and ½ or milk and 1 cup heavy cream blending until creamy and thickened.
Place turkey and diced grilled peppers in the casserole. Add the shiratake (Miracle) noodles. (Cut the noodles up with scissors to 3 or 4 inch length).
Pour cream mixture over all and stir well. Pour 1 cup Panko into remaining butter, mix well and spread over casserole. Bake casserole 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool a bit before serving. Sprinkle with freshly minced parsley.
