When I was growing up my mom would make a casserole called Chicken Tetrazzini all the time. It had spaghetti noodles, chicken, celery, mushrooms and cheese. When I went away to college, I typed up all of my mom's recipes that I liked and put them in a little folder. Chicken tetrazzini was one of them. After I got married, my husband often requested this recipe but it had so many steps and pots that I didn't like to make it very often. Now things have changed! I'm am so happy to report that I figured out a way to make this comforting casserole in one pot!
