Sometimes you just need a nice crockpot full of delicious comfort food. This Turkey Tetrazzini fits the bill using items typical found in the frugal refrigerator.
Crockpot Chicken/Turkey Tetrazzini
1 C chicken or turkey, cooked
8 oz spaghetti, cooked
1/2 cup celery, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
2-4 TBS Butter
8 oz cheddar cheese
1 can sliced mushroom (, 7 oz.)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can chicken broth
Dice & sautee vegetables in butter.
Combine all ingredients in crockpot & cook on low for 6-8 hrs.
Use Ham, canned chicken or tuna in place of the Chicken or Turkey.
Replace soup with homemade “Cream of” soup, homemade whitesauce or a can of cheddar cheese soup.
Increase liquid by 2/3 C (water or broth) and use uncooked noodles.
Substitute any type of pasta (or even rice) for the spaghetti.
Skip the sautee step and toss in the celery, onion & pepper uncooked.
Add peas (canned or frozen) to up the veggie quotient.
