Leftover Turkey Tetrazzini

I make this recipe with leftover turkey, and it's a whole new meal! We look forward to having it after Christmas and Thanksgiving and other times when I roast a turkey for a family gathering. —Susan Payne, Corner Brook, Newfoundland

    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (7 ounces) thin spaghetti, broken in half
  • 2 cups cubed cooked turkey
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Minced fresh parsley

Directions

  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain and place in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Top with turkey; set aside.
  • In a large skillet, saute the mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Whisk in the soup, milk, poultry seasoning and mustard until blended. Add cheddar cheese; cook and stir over medium heat until melted. Pour over turkey.
  • Sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses (dish will be full). Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with parsley.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Sharp cheddar cheese has been aged longer than regular cheddar. As cheese ages, its flavor becomes more pronounced. Using aged cheese in a recipe can add complexity and rich flavor, even to humble favorites like mac ’n’ cheese.
  • In Europe, Parmigiano-Reggiano and Parmesan are considered the same cheese. But in the U.S., Parmesan is a generic term that may not come from Italy’s Parmigiano-Reggiano region. Using the authentic Italian cheese (in a lesser amount than the original’s ½ cup) ensures a cheesy richness in the makeover with less fat and calories.
