Turkey Tetrazzini Deluxe

This was a quick, easy, and tasty dinner we enjoyed not too long ago. Fast enough for a work night, and I always love one-pot meals! You can play with the seasonings to adjust to your personal preference.

This dish is creamy, cheesy, and packed full of tasty protein and veggies. This is hearty and filling. We served this up along some of our favorite garlic Texas Toast and called it a night!

We've been attempting to use some of the items in the deep freezer that have drifted to the bottom and kind of sort of been forgotten about, and one of those items was a big turkey. We thawed for a couple days, cooked it up over the weekend and used the carcass to make stock, and ate the meat in various iterations for about a week (mostly in sandwiches with cranberry sauce, because - YUMM!!) I used the homemade turkey stock in this dish and always love the flavor good homemade stock adds to any dish - you can use chicken stock if you don't have turkey.
