Step By Step  

Tetrazzini sounds gourmet, but it's really the easiest thing ever to make with your turkey leftovers.

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

Easy Slow Cooker Turkey TetrazziniHow can something so easy be so filling and delicious?

If there’s one thing I like to do the day after Thanksgiving, it’s nothing. You heard me – after a day of working hard in the kitchen, chatting/laughing/”friendly debating” with family and marathon eating, the only thing I really have energy for the next day is putting my La-Z-Boy to good use (Okay, I don’t actually have a La-Z-Boy, but you catch my drift). And eating. I can definitely still find room to eat the next day.

That’s why this slow cooker turkey tetrazzini is my new best friend. Combine leftover turkey, noodles, soup, veggies, cheese and spices in a slow cooker, turn it on and let it be. In about four hours, you’ve got yourself a comfort food meal you can cozy up with in that recliner of yours.

Let’s get to it (so we can get back to being lazy)!

 

Easy Slow Cooker Turkey Tetrazzini

Gather your ingredients. A lot goes into making a stellar tetrazzini, but it’s nothing unusual – and you probably already have most or all of it from leftover Thanksgiving food making. We’ve got cream of chicken (or mushroom) soup, some heavy cream, dry white wine, Green Giant jarred mushrooms, chopped pimientos, frozen peas, broken spaghetti noodles, chopped onion and spices/herbs. Oh, and Parmesan cheese. Let us never forget the cheese.

Side note: Don’t have any leftover turkey? Not to worry! Diced cooked chicken breast or rotisserie chicken also tastes like magical mini elves sprinkled happiness and sunshine on your tongue. Or something like that.

Combine everything in a large bowl, except reserve half of the cheese.

Pour the ingredients into a lightly greased slow cooker. Sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese, then cover and cook on LOW for about 4 to 5 hours until the noodles are tender. You can spend that time “napping” (i.e., avoiding your family). Or actually napping.

AND THAT’S IT, my friends. Easy, simple, delicious, and perfect for the day after Thanksgiving or when you need a simple yet satisfying dinner in the midst of pre-holiday madness (it is Black Friday, after all, you ambitious holiday shoppers!).

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be returning to my hypothetical La-Z-Boy with a big bowl of this yumminess.
