Turkey Tetrazzini

Kinda Sorta

So, here’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I don’t have a picture of all the ingredients because I didn’t know what I was going to put in this or call it. It ended up looking like this, and it was GREAT!


I started with ground turkey, then added some seasonings.


Ahhhh yes, I had to sing along with Leona, what a voice she has. Me? well—-I didn’t sound so great **sigh**


So the seasonings are all mixed in, right? Now, what in the world am I going to do with it? I fried it–not really in balls, more like little turkey globs.


It ended up looking like this!


I took the globs out of the pan and sautéed mushrooms and onions,


until they looked like this…..


Then I put the globs back in the pan along with a can of chicken broth and let it hang out in the pan for while I boiled me up some noodles!


Then and only THEN did I add the Parmesan cheese.


then, then…oops, already said that. Ok, toss in the cooked noodles and…..


top with bread crumbs and parm cheese and bake it! See first picture for visual of final baked product.


Plate it up and enjoy!


Turkey Tetrazzini

1 Lb ground turkey

1 small onion, diced

1 C sliced mushrooms (fresh please)

1 can chicken broth 14 oz

½ lb egg noodles

1 C Parmesan cheese (split)

¼ teas pepper

½ teas salt

¼ teas ground thyme

¼ teas whole thyme

½ teas ground garlic

1 Tbs butter or margarine

1 Tbs flour

¼ C Italian bread crumbs.


Heat a large frying pan on med high with a drizzle of oil. Mix ground turkey with salt, pepper, both thyme’s, and garlic. Fry tablespoon size chunks of the turkey mixture until nicely brown. Remove from pan, add a little oil, onions and mushrooms, sauté until the onions are golden brown. Add the fried turkey to the onions and mushrooms along with the chicken broth. Simmer on low while the noodles are cooking. Cook noodles as directed on package.

Stir ¾ C of Parmesan cheese into the turkey mixture. If the sauce isn’t thick enough, melt the butter add the flour to it to make a paste. Slowly stir it into the sauce to thicken it. Drain cooked noodles and add desired amount to the turkey. You may not want to put all the noodles in; it depends on how saucy you want it.

Transfer the mixture to a 8 X 11 inch baking dish. Top with the bread crumbs and remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake @ 375 for 25 to30 minutes or until top is brown.
