How to make Turkey Tetrazzini
Step 1: In a large skillet, place the turkey breast, pour over the turkey stock, and season with salt and pepper.
Step 2: Over medium heat, bring this to a simmer, then adjust the heat to medium-low. Cover the skillet. Simmer for about 40 minutes until tender and the inside of the turkey breast has reached 165 degrees F. Or in a slow cooker, place the ingredients, then cook for 4 hours on low.
Step 3: When done, transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Chop or shred and set aside.
Step 1: Melt the butter in a large skillet.
Step 2: Once the butter has melted, add the onion. Saute over medium heat until soft.
Step 3: Add the garlic in the skillet, then the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Cook for a minute more.
Step 4: Stir in the flour until fully incorporated.
Step 5: Pour in the turkey stock followed by the cream and whisk until smooth. Cook further over medium heat, stirring until soft. Set aside.
Step 1: If baking directly, prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees.
Step 2: In a 9 x 13-inch greased baking dish, place the cooked pasta, shredded turkey, and peas. Pour the sauce over. Use a spatula to spread the sauce.
Step 3: Sprinkle the cheese on top and place it inside the oven. Bake for about 20 minutes or until bubbly and golden.
