Chicken Tetrazzini is a big, bubbly pasta bake with a creamy cheese sauce, and juicy chicken. It’s about as classic as a creamy pasta bake can get!
What is Chicken Tetrazzini?
Chicken Tetrazzini is a pasta bake casserole made with diced up chicken or turkey (or even seafood), mushrooms, and a buttery, cream based sauce. The popular American dish was created by chef Ernest Arbogast in honor of the Italian opera star Luisa Tetrazzini, who debuted at his San Francisco hotel in the 1900’s.
This is super delicious make-ahead casserole! Makes a great freezer meal!! Chicken, spaghetti, cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, butter, chicken broth, salt, pepper, garlic, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese. SO creamy and delicious.

What to Serve With this Chicken Tetrazzini
I used spaghetti noodles in this Chicken Tetrazzini version. Overall, this was a hit! We served it with some garlic parmesan corn on the cob and best ever one homemade rolls. You could also serve this with the overnight salad. I made this last Sunday. I might to need to make again this week. It sounds really delicious!
