Leftover Lover's Turkey Tetrazzini

Leftovers are transformed into this luscious post-Turkey Day casserole.


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 2-3 cloves garlic, chopped

  • Salt and pepper

  • 4 tablespoons flour

  • 1/2 cup dry white wine

  • 1 1/2 cups turkey gravy or turkey stock

  • 2 cups milk

  • A little freshly grated nutmeg

  • 1 cup grated Parmigiano Regginano cheese

  • 1 pound cooked leftover turkey, chopped

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked cauliflower or broccoli leftovers, chopped

  • 1/2 cup peas, defrosted or leftovers

  • Toppings: homemade breadcrumbs, chopped toasted leftover stuffing or Panko mixed with melted butter and Parmigiano Regginano cheese

  • 1 pound egg noodles or egg pasta cooked to al dente


Pre-heat the oven to 375ºF.

Heat the EVOO in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat; add the butter and melt into the EVOO. Add the onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Add the flour and stir for 1 minute. Whisk in the wine, then the gravy or stock and milk; adjust the salt and pepper and season with nutmeg, to taste. Let thicken enough to coat a spoon and stir in the parm Parmigiano Regginano cheese.

Stir the turkey, cauliflower, peas, pasta into the sauce and turn everything into a casserole dish. Top with breadcrumbs and bake until heated through, about 30 minutes.
