Thanksgiving is almost here and if you’re anything like me, you’re BEYOND excited to gather with friends and family and eat delicious food. We gather with the entire Luna gang for hanging out and feeding our faces, but there’s always one problem. We make WAY too much food!! There usually ends up being some last-minute friends invited to join in on the fun, and we always prefer to have more food than less. Because of that, we are usually divvying up food at the end and have plenty of leftovers. One item we always have leftovers of is the turkey, so today I wanted to share a delicious and simple recipe for Turkey Tetrazzini that is perfect for all that leftover meat.

We have always been fans of Tetrazzini, but we’ve always made it with chicken. I wanted to modify this classic recipe to include turkey, and I’m so glad I did. The result was amazing and the hubby declared it tasted better than our classic version. That made me so happy because I love trying out new recipes that are so delicious that they quickly become family favorites!

How to make Turkey Tetrazzini

This recipe really is so simple and doesn’t take long to prep and make. I began by combining the butter, sour cream, cream of celery, chicken broth, salt and pepper in a medium bowl to create my cream mixture. From there I added the turkey chunks and cooked linguine. Once this is all combined, I poured it into a greased casserole dish.

From there I topped the dish off with some grated Parmesan cheese, Mozzarella cheese as well as some bread crumbs. The cheeses and crumbs added so much flavor and create the perfect tetrazzini along with the creamy turkey linguine base.

I mean, look at those cheesy noodles!! You better believe the family loved this Turkey Tetrazzini! I already mentioned how much my hubby loved this recipe, but even my picky-eating kids enjoyed it. That’s a mom win right there, so you better believe I’ll be making these in the months to come.

HOLIDAY TIP: Use leftover turkey in recipes by chopping it up, bagging it and freezing to use in this recipe for later!

We have turkey for several holidays, so I’m excited to chop up leftover turkey, bag it and freeze it for future meals. It doesn’t get better (or easier) than that! I really hope you guys enjoy this recipe as much as we did. It really is so simple and so tasty. 🙂
