Although I could be wrong, I think the discussion was on Pamela Anderson's latest book, not Jean Anderson.

Oh, poo. The page is rather slow to load. I'll copy and paste.

Turkey Tetrazzini

The original Tetrazzini was made with thin spaghetti, but we find fusilli or gemelli easier to eat. If you prefer, use 8 ounces of thin spaghetti #9, but break the noodles in two before cooking. This dish is equally tasty made with leftover or rotisserie chicken, cooked shrimp, or chunk white (albacore) tuna. Prep: 15 minutes; Cook: 14 minutes; Bake: 25 minutes.

Ingredients
5 tablespoons butter, divided
1 (8-ounce) package sliced baby bella (cremini) mushrooms
4 green onions, chopped (about 2/3 cup)
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
3/4 cup half-and-half or evaporated milk, at room temperature
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1/4 cup sherry or port
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 cups hot cooked fusilli or gemelli
3 cups cooked turkey, diced
1 cup fine, fresh (soft) breadcrumbs

Preparation
1. Preheat oven to 375°. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large, deep, heavy skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and green onions, and sauté 8 to 10 minutes or until soft. Transfer to a large plate.
2. Melt 2 more tablespoons butter in skillet, and add flour, stirring until smooth, about 1 minute. Add chicken broth and half-and-half. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly thickened and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in 1/4 cup Parmesan and next 3 ingredients. Fold in mushroom mixture, cooked pasta, and turkey. Return to medium heat, and cook until thoroughly heated.

3. Transfer to a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch (2-quart) baking dish. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter; mix in breadcrumbs and remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan. Sprinkle topping evenly over dish. Place on middle oven rack, and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbling and beginning to brown.

Yield
Makes 6 servings

Sounds so much better than the usual cream-o-crap soup recipe.


Thank you. I have wild turkey breast in the freezer that needs to be used up soon.

You're welcome.

Speaking of poultry... the post office just called, my baby chicks have arrived and I'm off to fetch them!

They have your chicks at the Post Office? I'd surely have thought they'd be shipped some other way. Good luck!

Within a few hours after hatching, the chicks are packed in a small box and shipped by air from Iowa, Priority Mail to the Post Office. This is the 5th or 6th time we've ordered from this hatchery.

Well, who would have thought! They are cute right now, but I'll bet they grow FAST!
