  • 1 sleeve of Ritz crackers
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Bring large pot of water to a boil. Add linguine and olive oil . Cook until tender and drain liquid, reserving ¼ cup of pasta water.
  3. Pull turkey from the bone and shred. Place in bowl to the side.
  4. Dice onion and garlic into finely chopped pieces and cut button mushrooms into slices.
  5. Add 4 Tbsp of butter to pan on medium heat and throw in the onion, garlic and mushrooms. Stir until butter has melted and coated all ingredients. Add ¼- ½ cup chicken stock and stir. Once the liquid has evaporated, the onions are translucent and mushrooms are tender, remove from pan and place with turkey.
  6. Add 4 Tbsp butter to same pan that is now empty. Once melted, add flour. Whisk on low-medium heat until combined for about 2 minutes (Whisk continually as to be sure it does not burn). Add 1 cup chicken stock, 1 cup heavy cream and 1 cup milk. Continue to whisk constantly until all is combined and there are no lumps.
  7. Add salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and sherry vinegar and whisk.
  8. In a mixing bowl, add pasta, turkey, mushrooms, onion, garlic, peas, and sauce. Gently toss to combine.
  9. Transfer from the bowl to a greased 9x13 pan.
  10. In a gallon ziplock, add Ritz crackers and Parmesan cheese. Zip it tight and gently crush crackers using hands or rolling pin.
  11. Once the mixture is roughly the same consistency and size, sprinkle on top of the tetrazzini dish. Once completely covered, take 3 Tbsp cold butter and dice into small pieces. Place evenly on top of the Ritz cracker mixture.
  12. Place in oven uncovered for 20-25 until topping is golden brown and pasta is bubbling.
  13. Serve and enjoy!
