Chicken Tetrazzini
A classic that makes great use of leftover turkey or chicken. It’s so creamy and comforting that you’ll be glad it makes two casseroles—one for now and one for later.

Yield: Serves 12 (serving size: about 1 1/3 cups; 6 servings per casserole)

Ingredients
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Cooking spray
1 cup finely chopped onion
2/3 cup finely chopped celery
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 (8-ounce) packages presliced mushrooms
1/2 cup dry sherry
3 ounces all-purpose flour (about 2/3 cup)
3 (14.5-ounce) cans fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 1/4 cups (9 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
1/2 cup (4 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
7 cups hot cooked vermicelli (about 1 pound uncooked pasta)
4 cups chopped cooked chicken breast (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 (1-ounce) slice white bread
Preparation
1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Melt butter in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, black pepper, salt, and mushrooms; sauté 4 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Add sherry; cook 1 minute.

3. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Gradually add flour to pan; cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly (mixture will be thick) with a whisk. Gradually add broth, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
