8 oz. (1/2 lb.) spaghetti 2 1/2 c. cooked turkey, diced 2 Tbsp. butter 3 Tbsp. flour 2/3 c. chicken broth or stock 1 c. milk 2 Tbsp. sherry salt and pepper to taste 2 c. frozen peas
Turkey Tetrazzini is a scrumptious happy ending for leftover turkey - spaghetti with turkey and peas pulled together with a creamy sauce. (For my dad, it's one of the chief reasons to go to the trouble of making a non-Thanksgiving turkey.) Cook spaghetti according to package directions. (For a more healthy version, use whole wheat pasta like we did.) While spaghetti is cooking, dice leftover cooked turkey. Melt butter in a skillet. Once the butter is melted, sprinkle in the flour and combine flour and melted butter to make a roux (flour-butter paste). Gradually add chicken broth, stirring after each addition to make a smooth sauce. Then add the milk. By this time, the pasta should be done. Drain and set aside. Preheat oven to 350F. Taste the sauce - the warm milk releases sugars, so if it's too sweet for your taste, add a little salt and pepper or your favorite seasoning blend. (My kids are big fans of Krazy Salt.) Then stir in sherry. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick spray. Make a layer of spaghetti in the pan. On top of the spaghetti, make a layer of turkey. On top of the turkey, make a layer of frozen peas. Pour the sauce over the top. Bake at 350F for 15 min., or until the peas are piping hot.
