Turkey Tetrazzini

Turkey Tetrazzini
This classic turkey or chicken spaghetti casserole is rich with cheese and has a crunchy bread crumb topping. It was named after Luisa Tetrazzini, a famous Italian opera star at the turn of the 20th century. She enjoyed her fame with a flamboyant and generous public life, singing not only in opera houses but also for free on city streets: In 1910 she gave an outdoor Christmas Eve concert for a huge crowd in San Francisco. It’s unclear exactly how this particular dish came to be named after her — it was certainly meant as a compliment — but some accounts say it was her own recipe. The optional curry powder isn’t traditional, but it’s delicious, and a little added flair seems in the spirit of Ms. Tetrazzini.

Total time: 70 minutes
Yields: 10 servings
Number of ingredients: 17
  • Salt
  • 1 pound spaghetti or linguine
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 pound cremini mushrooms, any tough or dry stems discarded, sliced
  • 8 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon mild curry powder (optional)
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cups chicken or turkey stock or broth
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, cut into chunks
  • 3 cups shredded or chopped leftover cooked turkey or chicken
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 heaping cup grated Parmesan (4 ounces)
  • 1 cup shredded or grated fontina (4 ounces)
  • Black pepper
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
How to cook:
  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil and cook the pasta until just shy of al dente, about 2 minutes less than the package directs. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large Dutch oven, melt 4 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat, and add the mushrooms. Season lightly with salt, and cook, stirring only occasionally, until the mushrooms have released their liquid and have started to brown deeply, 8 to 11 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the flour and curry powder, if using. Stir well, until the flour and the mushrooms are evenly combined and the flour is evenly moistened, about 1 minute. Whisk in the white wine, and let it come to a boil, whisking constantly. Let the wine bubble to reduce slightly, 2 minutes. Whisk in the chicken stock, and let it come to a boil. Cook until it thickens noticeably, about 5 minutes.
  3. Reduce the heat to low. Whisk in the chunks of cream cheese (don’t worry if the cream cheese appears curdled), then fold in the turkey, peas and the cheeses. Season generously with black pepper. Add the drained pasta and toss with tongs to combine. Taste and add salt if necessary.
  4. Transfer to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter in a small bowl in the microwave, and toss it together with the panko and the almonds. Sprinkle the panko-almond mixture all over the top of the pasta, and bake until bubbly and browned on top, about 25 minutes. Let the casserole rest for 5 minutes before serving. It will be very creamy at first but will firm up as it cools.
Notes: Turkey Tetrazzini, Revived, Ingredients. 1.5 - 2 lbs ground turkey (could also use about 3 cups leftover turkey or even rotisserie chicken) 12 oz spaghetti or angel hair pasta

Chicken Tetrazzini

Chicken Tetrazzini
Chicken tetrazzini takes its name from the Italian opera star Luisa Tetrazzini, and was a mainstay of upscale restaurant menus of the early 20th century. Today, though, it is hardly fancy. (And definitely not Italian.) The recipe that follows is built on the frame of what might be called a Mississippi-style tetrazzini, made with canned tomatoes and chiles and processed cheese. The chef Brad McDonald, who grew up in Yazoo City, at the top of the Delta, used to cook a bespoke version for his tasting menu at the Lockhart, a restaurant in London, using washed-rind Irish cheese and a mixture of roasted green bell peppers and jalapeños to flavor his shredded chicken, along with porcini mushrooms and guajillo chiles. I made a few changes of my own, and discovered a weeknight casserole of great distinction.

Number of ingredients: 13
  • 1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms
  • 4 medium-size poblano peppers
  • 5 dried guajillo chiles, ends snipped and seeds discarded
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock, homemade or low-sodium
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium-size shallot, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 1 store-bought rotisserie chicken, the meat removed and shredded, approximately 1 pound
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

How to cook:
  1. Turn broiler to high, and set a large pot filled with salted water over high heat to come to a boil. As oven heats, place the mushrooms in a small bowl, and pour boiling water over them, then leave them to soak for approximately 20 to 25 minutes, then strain and set aside.
  2. Place the poblanos on a small sheet pan, and set on the highest rack under the broiler so that the skin blackens, turning a few times so that the roasting is even, approximately 15 to 20 minutes. When the skin is blackened and blistered all over, place the peppers in a medium bowl, cover it with a plate and allow to rest.
  3. Make the sauce. Put the dried chiles in a medium pot set over medium-high heat, and allow them to cook until they become fragrant, approximately 5 to 7 minutes, then turn heat to low, and add the chicken stock, milk, garlic and shallots. Allow the mixture to cook at just below a simmer for approximately 10 minutes, or until the chiles have softened. Remove from heat, and pour into a blender, then add 6 ounces of the grated Cheddar, and process to a smooth consistency. Set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, remove the skin and seeds from the roasted poblanos, and cut them into thin strips. Set aside.
  5. Heat oven to 400. Cook the spaghetti in the boiling salted water in the large pot until just al dente, approximately 9 to 10 minutes. Drain, and rinse under cold water until cool, then drain again.
  6. Return the spaghetti to the cooking pot, and toss it with the roasted pepper strips, the mushrooms, the shredded chicken meat and the lemon juice, then season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a casserole dish, approximately 9 inches by 13 inches, and pour the reserved cheese sauce over it. Cover with the remaining shredded cheese, place in oven and bake until the cheese has melted and started to turn golden brown, approximately 20 minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley, if you like, and serve.

How to cook:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a 4.8-qt (13x9) casserole dish.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large pot over medium-high heat, until foaming subsides. Add mushrooms with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and cook until liquids are released and mostly evaporated, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add shallots and cook for about 3-4 more minutes, until mushrooms are beginning to brown. Stir in garlic and thyme and cook for 1 minute, until fragrant. Remove mixture from pan and set aside.
  4. Melt 4 more tablespoons of butter in the empty pan. Stir in flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in milk, stock, cream, sherry, nutmeg, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Continue cooking, whisking, until the sauce is smooth, glossy, and coats the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes.
  5. Whisk in 3/4 cup Parmigiano Reggiano until smooth. Remove from heat and fold in sautéed mushrooms, peas, shredded turkey, and parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Stir in cooked linguine and pour into the prepared casserole dish.
  7. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter, stir in Panko breadcrumbs, the remaining 1/4 cup of parmesan, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture on top of the Tetrazzini.
  8. Place dish on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, until bread crumbs are browned and sauce is bubbling. Watch the breadcrumbs, particularly around the 15-minute mark. If they're starting to brown too quickly, shield the top of the dish with a piece of foil.
  9. Serve hot. The sauce will thicken signficantly as the tetrazzini stands and cools.
