Easy Tetrazzini

There are times to get the cookbook out or get a little creative in the kitchen and there are times to be a “Queen of Convenience.”  These “one pan wonders” seem to work great when I am tied up all day in a client meeting that includes a big lunch. I just put one of these together for my family to eat that evening then I usually skip out on dinner and just enjoy a glass of wine instead!

Well here is one I made tonight.  I try to only make things once a year or once in a great while so they do not get overdone and underappreciated.  When I was whipping this one up tonight my daughter commented “Oh yeah, I remember this one.  It is one of my all time ffaavvss.”  This is a very easy take on chicken tetrazzini. So easy that I call it…………


Easy Tetrazzini
2 – 10 oz. cans premium white chicken (do not drain, chicken and juices go into the pan)
1 – 10 ½ oz. can cream of chicken soup
1 – 10 ½ oz. can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup shredded Velveeta original
6 oz spaghetti cooked al dente (almost done) follow instructions on the box but usually boiled about 10 minutes.

Combine all in a 13 x 9 casserole dish.  If you like chunks of chicken leave the chicken chunky but if you prefer it more shredded then break up the chunks.  Put in oven on 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Can also be topped with crushed plain potato chips if you prefer.  Kid approved side dish is steamed peas.

For a few years now I have been using Ronzoni SmartTaste or Dreamfields Healthy Carb pastas.  These have more fiber than regular pasta.  We have tried some of the whole grain pastas but my kids do not like the taste or texture as well.  These two brands taste like the pasta we all grew up eating and yet are supposed to be slightly better for you.  They are a bit pricier but perhaps worth it for the benefits.
