Turkey Tetrazzini

Lauren Conforti


When my husband would ask me what I wanted him to make for my birthday dinner, I usually would ask for this dish! I absolutely love it! And, being a turkey junkie, it gives me my turkey fix. Haha! I also make this every year with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. And it is delicious made with chicken as well. :)

  7. Add spaghetti into baking dish. Add in the turkey mixture. Stir to blend well.
  8. Top with remaining parmesan cheese & mozzarella, if using. Bake about 1 hour, until bubbly & surface is lightly browned. ** Be sure to put a large baking sheet below the dish in the oven in case of bubbling over
