Turkey Tetrazzini

We've taken the fuss and the excess fat out of this one-time favorite, a retro supper that still can please a family. Rather than a stuffy casserole, we're revamped it into a quick sauté with a creamy pan-gravy that's sure to be a comforting, cold-weather warmer. Soak up the sauce with whole-wheat egg noodles.


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound 1/4 inch-thick turkey breast cutlets
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry (see Ingredient Note)
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 2/3 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped jarred roasted red peppers
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste


Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey and cook until lightly golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, cover and keep warm.

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the pan. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Sprinkle with flour; stir to coat. Stir in broth and sherry; bring to a simmer. Continue simmering, stirring constantly, until the mixture is slightly reduced, 1 to 2 minutes. Add milk, peas and peppers; return to a simmer, stirring often. Cook until thick and slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Stir in Parmesan and pepper. Return the turkey and any accumulated juices to the pan, turn to coat with sauce and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

Ingredient Note: Don't use the "cooking sherry" sold in many supermarkets — it can be surprisingly high in sodium. Instead, purchase dry sherry that's sold with other fortified wines in your wine or liquor store.
