Our recipe and dining furniture favorite today come from Lindsey, a sales associate in our Woodbury store. (if you’re just joining us, the first post in this “recipe and furniture favorites” series is here).
Lindsey’s sharing a great way to use leftover turkey and here’s what she has to say: Turkey Tetrazzini is a family pleasing recipe to use up left over turkey and gravy.
It is an add-in-leftovers kind of casserole – no rules!! For example, the curry gives it a fuller flavor but if you’re not a fan, leave it out. You could add poultry seasoning and/or garlic powder instead. Adding peas is also an option.
yield: 6-8 servings. Reheats well.
- 1 1/2 – 2 cups chopped cooked turkey
- 3/4 lb. cooked and drained spaghetti (reserve 3/4 cup of the pasta water)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 can cream of mushroom or cream of chicken condensed soup
- 1/2 cup leftover gravy
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs or leftover stuffing
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- salt and pepper to taste
Cook the spaghetti to the al dente stage, reserve 3/4 cup of the pasta water. Cook the celery and onion in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until tender. Combine all of the ingredients, except the bread crumbs/stuffing and melted butter. Place into a buttered baking dish ( 9 x 13 ). Mix the bread crumbs or stuffing with the melted butter, place on top of the Tettrazini and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes, or until bubbling on the edges.
One of Lindsey’s favorites from our current dining selection is the updated traditional Universal Proximity Collection. The design features a wood inlaid patterned top, trimmed edge, and a gorgeous tapered leg. Each piece is crafted of figure cherry veneers and hardwood solids and finished in a dark, lightly distressed Sumatra finish.
Proximity offers three different chair styles that can be mixed and matched to your liking and, no matter which one you choose, they’ll make a great design statement.
