This Cheesy Chicken Tetrazzini recipe is perfect for a fall evening. Made with fresh mushrooms, chicken and Parmesan cheese, it is a comforting classic casserole.
This recipe does not include any creamy condensed soup, so you can really control the sodium and cream. This is a perfect pantry dinner and is hearty and tasty.
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.
I think you will find this chicken Tetrazzini recipe not only warm and hearty, but wonderfully tasty too. I like to make it with fettuccine noodles, the can easily be substituted with spaghetti or linguine noodles if that is what you have in stock.
There is just something about a baked casserole that is so comforting!
