Leftover turkey tetrazzini is one of our favorite ways to use extra Thanksgiving turkey. Since having leftovers are arguably the best part of cooking a big Thanksgiving meal, its crucial to have some great recipes on hand to transform that turkey into something fantastic! This leftover thanksgiving casserole uses turkey with fresh vegetables and egg noodles in a creamy sauce, ready in under an hour.

I always loved turkey tetrazzini when I was little, and this grown up version is super hearty and packed with veggies too.  I love loading in the fresh veggies too – the sautéed onions, mushrooms, and fresh parsley absolutely make this dish. It can also be made ahead too – just combine all the ingredients in a pan, and omit the baking step.  Cover and refrigerate the night before, and pop it in the oven the next day. Thanksgiving comfort food at its best.

This Leftover Turkey Tetrazzini Recipe Is:

  • Simple
  • Creamy
  • Comforting
  • A great no-waste recipe!
  • Gluten Free
  • Easy to Make with Thanksgiving Left Over Turkey

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Ferenheit.
  • In a large pot, bring 8 cups of water to a boil and cook the egg noodles al dente according to package directions.  Drain and set aside.
  • In a large pot (I used the same pot), heat the olive oil on low until shimmering. Add the onions and garlic, and sauce for 5 minutes until soft.  Add the celery and mushrooms and sauce for another 8 minutes on low heat.  Add the frozen peas, spinach, Italian seasoning and stir.  Turn off heat.
  • In a sauce pan, heat the vegetable stock and milk on low heat, until just simmering.  Add the cream cheese and stir until all ingredients have melted together.
  • To the pot with the veggies- add the egg noodles, cream cheese/milk mixture, and the chopped turkey.  Add the parsley, black pepper, 1.5 cups of mozzarella, and stir to combine.  Add ingredients to a greased 13x9 inch baking dish.  Top with remaining half cup of mozzarella and breadcrumbs.
  • Cook covered for 20 minutes.  Remove cover, and cook for an additional 15 minutes until top begins to brown and the casserole is bubbly.
