Turkey Tetrazzini is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Sunday Funday. We group up on Sundays to share recipes on a common topic. This week we are sharing recipes for Clean Out the Fridge. We can all blame Thanksgiving for the overload of food.
This recipe is one I have had for awhile. I posted it at Recipezaar a long time ago. And am just now bringing it over to the blog.
This type of retro casserole is one I made a lot in the 1970’s and 1980’s. It has a bit of an Alsatian flavor, especially with the hint of nutmeg.
My family thinks it is delicious. I hope your family does as well.
