Really cheesy and good!!! The entire family loved it. Freezes well before baking.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This creamy casserole recipe is a delicious way to use leftover holiday turkey. We were a little concerned with the lack of seasoning in this turkey tetrazzini, but between the fresh vegetables and cheese, there is plenty of flavor. Onion and garlic really add texture along with a punch of flavor. The soups and two types of cheese make this creamy and yummy. Parmesan adds a little salt and savoriness to the casserole.
