Gluten Free Turkey Tetrazzini

Gluten Free Turkey Tetrazzini Recipe

Reason number 759 I will never be considered a true “foodie” – I love casseroles. Yep, it’s true.

I know that casseroles are not hip, sexy, and cool. In fact if you look in a book of antonyms you will see that the opposite of hip, sexy, and cool is casserole.

But I don’t care. I love casseroles and everything they stand for. Didn’t know that casseroles stood for something? Sure they do. They stand for everything good about living in a community; comfort, caring, and consideration.

When someone has a baby, what could be a better gift than a weeks’ worth of casseroles waiting in the freezer ready to be re-heated ? When you have an operation or the flu, how comforting is it when a neighbor brings over a casserole to feed your family while you recuperate? What’s a housewarming, wake, or church potluck without a “covered dish”?

In times of tragedy and times of joy, casseroles make an appearance. And I hope that this will never change, no matter how unhip, unsexy, and uncool casseroles are.

Besides, what better way to use up leftovers?

So – are you uncool enough to love casseroles? If so, what’s your favorite?

Recipe notes – Due to making an entire Thanksgiving meal in August for the magazine, I happened to have a ton of turkey left over. If you don’t then use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, just make sure it’s gluten free. I used organic gluten free brown rice spaghetti from Pastariso; you could use linguini, fettuccini, or any pasta shape you prefer. There is no cream of mushroom soup in this recipe but I do take some short cuts by using gluten free chicken stock from a box. There may be people who always have homemade chicken stock in their fridge (usually in a gorgeous ceramic pitcher) but I am not one of those people. I like the combination of half and half with my chicken stock – you can use any dairy free milk you like or even just double the amount of chicken stock and leave milk or cream out altogether.

    I grew up on casseroles so I miss them. Will have to give this a try. I don’t keep stock in a gorgeous ceramic pitcher in the fridge but I do keep stock or broth ice cubes in the freezer. You never know when you might need a little stock :)

    As a recently diagnosed True Celiac. For
    the record, I’m still fighting this diagnosis, even after three gastrologists , two biophys, and 4 months of being gluten free and feeling great — I still ant believe it. :(

    Just made this tonight, and it was delicious! I used Tinkyada brown rice penne pasta, and it came out perfectly. The kids and husband had seconds, as did I! Great recipe.
