Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    This elegant one-dish meal is a spin-off on Chicken Tetrazzini, a dish said to have been named for opera singer Luisa Tetrazzini.
  • tip 2
    Need a shortcut? Omit steps 3 and 4, and make a quick sauce by mixing 1 can each (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom and cream of chicken soups, 3/4 cup milk and 2 tablespoons dry white wine or chicken broth in a large bowl. Stir in spaghetti, turkey, olives and almonds. Spread the mixture in the baking dish, and sprinkle with cheese before baking.
