How to Make Turkey Tetrazzini
1In olive oil on medium heat cook bacon. Add onion.
2Add butter, garlic and quartered mushrooms.
3Add a glass of wine and chopped black olives.
4Add flour and stir to make a roux.
5Add chicken broth, then peas.
6Add cheeses (stir frequently to keep from sticking). Keep the heat on medium to low.
7Break the spaghetti into thirds and cook to al dente. The pasta will finish cooking completely in the oven.
8Add drained pasta to the mixture.
9Toss with large tongs to coat pasta completely. It should be somewhat soupy, if not add more broth or some cream. Adjust seasoning (salt and pepper) now.
10Pour into pans. Yes, I said pans--as in plural--I said this makes a lot! This made two-10 3/4 x 9 3/8 pans.
11Cover each dish with Panko crumbs and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until the topping is brown and bubbly.
