After a few rounds of leftovers, it’s great to be able to taste new flavors. This Turkey Tetrazzini does that in easy, one-dish meal.

  • 8 ounces whole-wheat fettuccine, spaghetti, macaroni, or other noodles
  • 4 tablespoons light butter (unsalted)
  • 2 cups Mushrooms, sliced (fresh or canned)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 4 cups chopped cooked turkey
  • 1 cup peas (frozen)
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • Preheat oven to 400 °F. Lightly grease a 9×9-inch baking dish.
  • Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until tender. (Check cooking time for pasta; remove pasta approximately 2 minutes early.)
  • While pasta is cooking, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and thyme. Stir and cook until mushrooms are softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in flour until well blended. (Note: Start with ¹/3 cup flour and add more, if needed.)
  • While whisking, slowly add chicken broth and milk. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until sauce is thickened and smooth, about 5 minutes.
  • Add turkey, toasted almonds, frozen peas, and cooked pasta. Gently mix together. Pour into the baking dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is golden brown, 25-35 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes before serving.
