Turkey Tetrazzini Recipe

Soon Thanksgiving will be here and many of us will be drowning in left-over turkey. As much as I love turkey sandwiches, they can get old quickly. Well, thank you,Betty Crocker , for coming to our rescue and giving us this recipe! I will be trying it with MY leftovers in a few weeks.
