This dish is a little different than a traditional tetrazzini. It has no mushrooms and is made with cheese, onion, bell pepper, soup, and Worcestershire. No one eats this and leaves my house without the recipe.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Cook and stir green bell pepper and onion in 1 cup retained stock in a saucepan over medium heat until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Cook vermicelli pasta with remaining 2 cups chicken stock in a separate pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender and stock has been absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes.

  • Combine cooked chicken, bell pepper, onion, cooked pasta, cream of mushroom soup, Worcestershire sauce, Cheddar cheese, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl; pour mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and top is lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

We weren't a fan. It really tasted like Worcestershire Sauce to me. Husband asked to go back to our old recipe. Sorry but we won't be making this again. Read More
