Turkey Tetrazzini Leftover Style

This recipe is fast, easy and economical. It’s also a great way to use left-over holiday turkey and any left-over holiday gravy. We seldom have any left-over holiday gravy, but you can substitute jarred roasted turkey gravy in this recipe. Also, this recipe calls for using creamed spinach. In my area, the only brand of creamed spinach that I can find is by Birdseye. Turkey Tetrazzini is super delicious, no matter how you make it.

Chicken or Turkey

This recipe is a great way to use up left-over holiday turkey. It also calls for a jar of roasted turkey gravy, but left-over turkey gravy will certainly work too. You don’t have to wait for the holidays to make this recipe or buy/make a turkey either. Simply buy a rotisserie chicken or when making chicken for dinner, throw in an extra piece and make this recipe. All you need is 2 cups of cooked, cubed chicken or turkey. Personally I think turkey has more flavor than chicken for this recipe so that’s why I use turkey to make turkey tetrazzini instead.
