    Serves: 6 

    • 220g spaghetti
    • 1/2 small onion, chopped
    • 1/4 cup chopped green capsicum
    • 60g grated Cheddar cheese
    • 2 cups leftover roast turkey, shredded into bite-sized pieces

    1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease a 20x30cm baking dish.
    2. Break spaghetti into 5cm pieces. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the spaghetti and return to a boil. Cook the spaghetti uncovered, stirring occasionally, until it has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
    3. Combine onion and green capsicum with cooked spaghetti, 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, turkey meat, mushroom soup, chicken stock, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix lightly and spread the mixture in the baking dish and top with 60g grated cheddar cheese.
    4. Bake, uncovered, in oven for 45 minutes until the casserole is bubbling and cheese topping is melted and browned.

    My mother cut this out of a newspaper in Maine at least 30 years ago and always made it. It was always a family favorite. After her death and the death of my daughter who she had given it to, I thought we'd lost if forever. Lo and behold it, I found it in my daughter's cookbook.It is a wonderful recipe to use up your leftover turkey or one could use chicken.  -  30 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Also by using broad egg noodles,rather than spaghetti you get a better flavour and texture.  -  28 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is turkey tetrazini and is an excellent way to use leftover turkey.  -  28 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
