A delicious combination of leftover turkey, veggies, and noodles. I usually double the topping ingredients.

  • Mix milk, cream cheese, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and nutmeg into mushroom mixture; cook, stirring occasionally, until cream cheese is melted and sauce is warmed, 5 to 10 minutes. Add turkey and peas to sauce.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain and mix noodles into turkey mixture; pour into the prepared baking dish.

  • Combine Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and 3 tablespoons melted butter together in a bowl until crumbly; sprinkle over noodle mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top is browned and sauce is bubbling, about 30 minutes.

I really enjoy turkey tetrazzini to help me deal with Thanksgiving leftovers. And this was pretty good; I liked the egg noodles instead of the spaghetti I have typically used. There was nothing exciting about the flavor though. This took much longer to assemble and prepare than I expected it to and I dirtied so many dishes to make it. I was glad that I read through the recipe before I started or I would have taken even longer to make the dish. All ingredients need to be chopped measured etc. before you begin. Read More

I made this for dinner last night and let me tell you it is a winner!!!! My husband loved it and so did I. The only thing I did different was intsead of breadcrumbs for the topping I crushed up seasoned crutons for a crunchier topping. The next time I make this I plan to to use 4 cups of milk for the sauce because I thought it was a little dry after baking. Read More

Not a recipe I would repeat without doing several changes. Since I don't agree with saying "how good it was but I changed this and this and this" I will just leave my review at not so likeable. Read More

I doubled this recipe because I'm feeding a large family. I have made other tetrazzini recipes before and I liked this one best for ease of preparation and very creamy sauce. Overall a little bland I would have liked a little more herb flavor or maybe a spicy kick but a bit of salt and pepper at the table did the trick. The crunchy topping was pleasant. All around happy votes from the kids and definitely a happy turn on our Thanksgiving leftovers. Those who are off put by the nutmeg I use nutmeg a lot you'd be surprised by its versatility. Read More

This was an amazing recipe! I omitted the mushrooms and peas. Instead of the peas I added thinly sliced carrots to the onion celery and butter mixture. It turned out great. My picky family ate it all and asked for it again. Read More

My son and 14 yr old grandson loved it. My 9 yr old granddaughter thought it was just OK. My 6 yr old grandson ate the noodles only. I'm giving it 5 stars and inserting it in my favorites. Read More

It's delicious except I changed a few things because I didn't have all the ingredients in my kitchen... I look at this as a "leftover" recipe but I didn't have all the ingredients it called for. I made it exactly by the recipe except I didn't have celery mushrooms or cream cheese. So I made it exactly as written except I omitted the mushrooms and celery and I substituted 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan for the cream cheese. I did everything else as written. It's absolutely delicious and it would have only been better if I'd had the celery mushrooms and cream cheese and followed the recipe exactly. But if you're missing a few ingredients as I was just use this recipe as a guide and make the best dish you can. We all loved it! Read More

This is the exact recipe that was on the Milk Calendar in 1994. Have been making it for years and it is excellent! Read More
