Stovetop Tetrazzini tastes like a weekday luxury, and no one but you needs to know it only takes 30 minutes to make! Forks will swirl the buttery spaghetti that's drenched in a thick, rich, and creamy sauce–they'll swear it took hours to achieve such flavor. To guarantee everyone is left filled to the brim, savory crumbled turkey, spongey sliced mushrooms, refreshing chopped celery, and sweet diced pimientos join in the indulgence. Tossed together in a great big bowl with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, Stovetop Tetrazzini will be your scrumptious, simple secret!
