What exactly is tetrazzini? It's a pasta dish with mushrooms and cream sauce. We added black pepper, nutmeg and green onions to our easy chicken version.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves and/or thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 4 1/2 - ounce jars (drained weight) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 16 - ounce jar Alfredo pasta sauce
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth or water
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 10 ounces dried spaghetti or linguine
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (3 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup thinly sliced green onion (6)
  • Toasted French bread slices (optional)

Directions

  1. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine chicken and mushrooms. In a medium bowl, stir together alfredo sauce, broth, sherry (if desired), pepper, and nutmeg. Pour over chicken mixture in cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2-1/2 to 3 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain. Stir Parmesan cheese into chicken mixture in cooker. Serve chicken mixture over spaghetti, topping each serving with green onion. If desired, serve with toasted French bread slices. Makes 8 servings.
