Ham Tetrazzini is rich, creamy, and cheesy with lots of cubed ham and a few mushrooms and peas. This is an easy, filling family meal that is great for using up leftover Thanksgiving or Easter ham. It’s practically a one pan meal. You just need a pan plus a pot to cook the pasta in.
Tetrazzini is one of my very favorite things to cook for dinner. What’s not to like about pasta, meat, and cheese? If you have leftover turkey, try this Turkey Tetrazzini. It’s made from scratch, without canned soup, and it is so delicious.
Great Way To Use Leftovers
I love recipes like this Ham Tetrazzini recipe that take a little leftover meat and stretch it into a filling, economical family meal. Just add a salad and maybe some bread and you have a meal that will satisfy even the hungriest of teenagers.
I adore mushrooms so I always add them to tetrazzini, but they could be left out. You could sub broccoli for the peas if you like.
