Turkey Tetrazzini is a superb recipe for the days after Thanksgiving and Christmas. When you have had enough of the roasted meals, this lovely pasta dish makes a lovely change. This recipe helps to use so many leftovers, nothing goes to waste. Also I have used chicken and ham in this main dish for other times of the year. When the cheese melts into the dish, it becomes so sumptuous when the soft pasta and delicate vegetables. You can also add peas for additional colour and texture. The addition of cream, makes a sauce so silky and smooth, it binds the entire recipe together.
