    This is a fantastic, easy recipe. Even without cream, it's very rich tasting (there is a decent amount of butter!) and it's an excellent way to use up the extra turkey. Everyone in my family loved it! We've tried other Tetrazzini recipes, but this one is simple and excellent. Highly recommended!

    Most tetrazzine's have milk or cream. This one does not.??? I will compare to other recipes and make my own version.
