Mushroom Turkey Tetrazzini Recipe


Mushroom Turkey Tetrazzini

12 oz. uncooked spaghetti, broken into 2 inch pieces

2 tsp. chicken bouillon granules

½ lb. sliced fresh mushrooms

2 Tbsp. butter

2 Tbsp. flour

¼ cup sherry or reduced-sodium chicken broth

¾ tsp. salt-free lemon-pepper seasoning

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

1 cup fat-free evaporated milk

2/3 cup cubed Parmesan cheese, divided

4 cups cubed cooked turkey breast

¼ tsp. paprika

Cook spaghetti according to package directions.  Drain, reserving 2 ½ cups cooking liquid.  Stir bouillon into cooking liquid and set aside.  Place spaghetti in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray; set aside.

In a large nonstick skillet, sauté mushrooms in butter until tender.  Stir in flour until blended.  Gradually stir in sherry and reserved cooking liquid.  Add the lemon-pepper, salt and nutmeg.  Bring to stir boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.

Reduce heat to low; stir in milk and 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese until blended.  Add turkey; cook and stir until heated through.  Pour turkey mixture over spaghetti and toss to combine.  Sprinkle with paprika and remaining Parmesan cheese.

Cover and bake at 375 F. for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.                   8 serving
