    It looks like there should be an additional note regarding freezing this dish. Since I've prepared this and thrown it into the freezer, I'm wondering about that note. I'm planning to bake this for dinner later this week. Do I thaw it before baking? Does it go straight from freezer to oven? If yes, will it take a few more minutes?

    Really really good. Just ate the second one that had been in the freezer for a month. It was even better than the original one! I would definitely make this again. A handy tip for me was to line a baking pan with plastic wrap, fill it and put it in the freezer, then when it is frozen, take it out of the pan and place in a freezer bag. This really saved room in the freezer and freed up a pan.

      When frozen how long and at what temperature did it bake? Covered or uncovered? Thank you.

    Tetrazzini is generally very bland. As is, this recipe was no different; flavor is lacking. Tried again and here's what I did to amp up the flavor: Sauté the mushrooms in olive oil, butter and white wine. Also while sautéing, add ~4 minced cloves of garlic to the mushrooms, and several sprigs of thyme. Season well with salt & pepper. For topping, use a mixture of Parm & Italian bread crumbs. We like to put some sriracha on top of each serving to give it a kick!

    I hate to say this because Martha is usually spot on, but this recipe is a total DUD. This tetrazzini tasted like it was made for someone on a hospitalized mandated bland diet. Suck it up and add a large can of cream of chicken soup - it helps a lot. By the time I was done doctoring it, it was no longer Martha's dish. Add saut?ɬ

    Joshuafitthebattle, instead of mushrooms you can pour some asparragus or green beans, or chick peas, or zuchini, or eggplant, even corn...

    hmccarthy, try using rotisserie chicken instead, and sub fresh celery for the peas. you may also pour some curry powder, or chili powder, and garlic powder. You may also add 1/2 parmesan and 1/2 other cheease that your family likes best or a more flavoful one.

    I use rotel and velveeta cheese in place of parmesean.

    I have made it twice and it's too bland for us. :( We usually put tabasco on it before we eat. Does anyone know of a way to add another dimension of flavor to this? Possibly something sweet and more complex.
