Tetrazzini Notes

What to do when the holidays leave you with a pound of leftover turkey? Why make Tetrazzini, of course! A hearty meal for a cold day everyone can enjoy!

  • 5 ounces thin spaghetti
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 3 ounces Sauterne or other white cooking wine
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon roasted garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 pound diced cooked turkey or chicken
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Serves / Yields

4-6 servings

Preparation Instructions
  1. Pre-Heat the oven to 350°F
  2. Start by boiling the water and cooking the Spaghetti
  3. Boil the 2 Cups Water and mix the 1 Tablespoon of Bouillon
  4. Mix the Milk and Anchovy Paste together
  5. Beat the egg and mix the ½ & ½ with the egg
  6. Heat a heavy skillet (cast iron preferred). Melt 3 Tablespoons butter and begin to sauté the mushrooms. Add the shallots once the mushrooms begin to brown. Once the shallots begin to turn translucent, add the Sauterne and continue to sauté.
  7. Heat a 4 quart pot over High heat and melt 4 Tablespoons butter and then add the spices and flour. Stir rapidly with a fork until lightly browned
  8. Pour in the chicken broth and the Anchovy Paste/Milk to the pot. Continue to rapidly stir until the liquid begins to thicken slightly
  9. Add the ½ & ½ / egg mixture. Continue to stir rapidly as the sauce will rapidly thicken and burn without care
  10. Add the poultry, spaghetti, black pepper, mushrooms, shallots, and parsley to the pot. Mix and heat evenly
  11. Pour mixture into an ungreased 9x13 glass baking dish and sprinkle the Parmesan Cheese on top
  12. Bake for 20 minutes
  13. Remove and allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving
Helpful Hints

I highly recommend the "Better than Bouillon" mix for making the chicken broth. I usually use "Mini-Bella" Mushrooms for this recipe
