It's the day after Thanksgiving and your fridge is bursting with turkey leftovers. That's perfect, because our recipe for Tempting Turkey Tetrazzini calls for just that: leftover turkey! This easy casserole recipe is a simple way to use up leftovers and surprise people around the dinner table with something delicious. Just like Thanksgiving dinner, everyone will want "just one more bite" after their plates are clean. 

What You'll Need

  • 12 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine or water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups coarsely chopped cooked turkey breast (about 1 pound) (see Tip)
  • 1/4 cup Italian-style bread crumbs

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a soup pot over medium-high heat, bring broth to a boil. Stir in mushrooms and cook 3 minutes. Stir in milk.
  3. In a small cup, combine cornstarch and wine, and stir until smooth; slowly pour into mushroom mixture and cook until slightly thickened, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in salt, pepper, and turkey. Add spaghetti and toss until well coated. Spoon spaghetti mixture into baking dish and sprinkle evenly with bread crumbs.
  5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I bet this would make a great recipe to have leftovers for at lunch.

My mother made this every year after Thanksgiving except she added shredded cheddar cheese and bread crumbs on top. I make it any time of the year because we really love it. My husband and girls asked for it frequently.

Just made this from frozen Thanksgiving turkey. My husband helped make it and it was delicious.

This was wonderful. Didn't have an spaghetti so I used linguine and chicken. Worth the effort and my family loved. it.

This Seems Like it Would taste good...

We had it last night with leftover turkey and loved it! I'ts a keeper!

I did this with my thanksgiving leftovers and was delicious, and a very easy recipe and I will be making it again.

I have made it baked in the oven with grated cheddar cheese around the edges and used cream of mushroom soup and mushrooms and was fantastic. Yours sounds good with the bread crumbs also!!!

I LOVE the mushroom idea and the cheese.
