food-turkeyGot any turkey leftover? Turkey Tetrazinni is a dish we like almost as much as the big bird just out of the oven on Thanksgiving Day. Leftover turkey is great on nice crunchy rolls with all the other goodies. But my husband usually requests this dish if I have at least two cups of leftover turkey. Here’s what you do:

Into a pot of boiling water add 8 oz. of spaghetti that you have broken into small pieces – thirds or fourths 

While that is boiling:

  • melt 3 T. butter in a skillet
  • Add 1/2 c. chopped onion
  • and 1/2 c. chopped green pepper.

Cook until soft. Stir occasionally.

  • In a big bowl:
  • empty one can of cream of chicken soup  
  • stir in 1/2 c. milk until smooth
  • add 2 to 2 1/2 c. chopped, cooked turkey
  • add the onion and green pepper thats been cooking in the skillet  

Drain the spaghetti when it is done and rinse it. Add it to everything in the big bowl.  Mix all together. Then add and stir together 2 c. shredded Monteray Jack cheese. 

Put into a lightly buttered casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. I hope you enjoy this dish. Let me know how it turns out.
