Today is in the fifties and sunny.
What is happening today up on Red Oak Ridge?
Dinner is Chicken Tetrazzini. Sunday's dinner was a whole roasted chicken. Which I was to share with my dear Mother. Snowed out!
So today I cleaned off the bones of said chicken. Some to use,some to freeze, some for soup.
As I was preparing the Tetrazzini, one of my cats learned a valuable lesson. To not eat wasps. They are not tasty treats! They are angry and sting the tender mouth.
On with the recipe, after rescuing the cat and killing the wasp.
1/4 butter plus some for the mushrooms
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 can of chicken broth
1 cup of evaporated milk
small onion minced
1 cup of mushrooms sliced
1 small clove of garlic minced
1 8 oz box of spaghetti
1/2 grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 and 1/2 cup of cooked chicken, chopped.
* if you want to add to the sauce once the sauce is made add and heat through.
1/2 cup dry white wine
Heat your oven to 350 degrees
prepare a casserole with some butter, greasing the bottom and sides.
Now: Put a pot of water on to boil your spaghetti, bring to a boil and salt the water well. Place the dried spaghetti in the water and cook until done 8-12 minutes should do it.
In a saucepan heat over mid-high and melt a 1/4 cup butter, when melted add 1/4 cup all purpose flour stir until incorporated. To not let it brown. Stir in 8 oz of chicken broth and bring to a gentle bubble. Add the evaporated milk about 1 cup. Heat through. season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a saute pan melt a teaspoon of butter, saute 1 cup of mushrooms,(I used portabello). add the mince onion 1/2cup, and 1 minced clove of garlic at the end.
Add to the sauce with the chopped up cooked chicken.
The spaghetti is drain and pour into the prepared dish and pour the sauce with the mushrooms and chicken. Grate 1/2 cup of Assiago cheese and top. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown and bubbly. Serve with your favorite side and crusty bread or garlic toast and enjoy. We are having ours with Broccoli and garlic toast today.
The cat is fine he is having a nap. Tomorrow brings warmer temperatures. I love it!!
