"You can also substitute ham or turkey for the chicken. This dish was named for Luisa Tetrazzini, a well known, well FED turn-of-the-century Italian singer!" — MARBALET

I stumbled onto this recipe on accident when I was looking for a way to use up some half and half. By the third bite, my husband rated it A+! When I tell him it is on the menu he claps his hands! We use 4 chicken breasts instead of the tenderloins. It ends up having chicken in every bite. It is every bit as good the next day too.
This really wasn't bad. It was good comfort food, but we also found it a little bland. I also think that a pasta dish doesn't need this much flour in the sauce, it was a little too much and the cheeses would have thickened it well enough. I recommend using more spices like garlic and perhaps a little mustard too, to make it more flavourful.
This was a great dish my girlfriend and i Love to eat this dish in the winter because it is so hearty.
I made this for our church dinner and got RAVE reviews!! There was another dish of someone else's tetrazzini next to mine - they took theirs home with them while I took home an empty pan:-)
Yum! This was very good, although I did do some substitutions. I used condensed milk instead of cream, minced garlic instead of garlic salt, canned mushrooms, and green peppers instead of red/yellow. It's very easy and I was asked "when can you make it again???" Thanks for the recipe!
next time I will add more mushrooms and shred the chicken before adding it to the sause but absolutley fantastic!
A huge hit with my husband!
This recipe was very tasty. I am not a very big cooked pepper fan, but the red peppers were very good with the other flavors in this recipe. This recipe is very thick though, so in the future I would use a different pasta, such as bow tie or penne. I will definately add this to my favorate list though. Thanks for the recipe.
Soooo good! I did the recipe almost all as was called for especially with the sauce part, but did add some more salt and seasoned salt to sauce and used italian cheese mixture and parmesan cheeae instead of swiss cheese. I also added green pepper, onion and garlic to the sauteed chicken. I also used angel hair pasta and used skim milk instead of half and half. Serve with garlic bread. Yum!! Thank you for the recipe!
