Hi Friends! Today’s recipe is one of those old school recipes that I lighted up a bit. My grandmother used to make lots of wonderful casseroles with cream of chicken soup and they were wonderful.

In attempting to recreate some of the meals, I have tried to modify them a bit to reduce the amount of both fat and sodium. This is one of those recipes that took me a couple of times to get to where I was ready to share it. chicken tetrazzini casserole
