Long after Thanksgiving is over, we've been known to cook a turkey breast just so that we can make this extra-comforting retro dish, loaded with mushrooms and flavored with white wine.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, saute the mushrooms in 4 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat, stirring, until most of the liquid they give off has evaporated, stir in the flour, and cook the mixture over low heat, stirring, for 3 minutes. In a slow, steady stream, add the milk, the broth, and the wine, stirring, bring the mixture to a boil, stirring, and simmer the sauce for 5 minutes. In a large pot of boiling salted water cook the spaghetti until it is al dente and drain it well.
  2. In a large bowl combine well the cooked spaghetti, the mushroom sauce, the turkey, the peas, and salt and pepper to taste, stir in ⅓ cup of the Parmesan, and transfer the mixture to a buttered shallow 3-quart baking dish. In a small bowl combine well the remaining ⅓ cup Parmesan, the bread crumbs, and salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle the mixture evenly over the tetrazzini, and dot the top with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter, cut into bits.
  3. DO AHEAD: The tetrazzini may be prepared up to this point 1 month in advance and kept frozen, covered.
  4. Bake the tetrazzini in the middle of a preheated 375°F oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until it is bubbling and the top is golden brown.
