More About This Recipe

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