Make a Cozy Meal with Turkey Tetrazzini

When winter takes firm hold of the temperature and keeps it hanging around 20 degrees (or lower), it calls for recipes that will warm you to your core. Cozy meals are where it’s at this time of year and the Turkey Tetrazzini recipe I have for you today fits the bill. I like this particular dish because it is easy to prepare and makes enough to have for a meal today and one to stick in the freezer for another day.

Turkey Tetrazzini

Turkey Tetrazzini is one of my go-to meals for leftover turkey or roasted chicken…better yet- on those days when time is really at a premium, I grab a rotisserie chicken or turkey breast, add a side salad and dinner is ready in no time.

So, when you are needing a break from chili or soup, take out this hearty cozy recipe and enjoy.
