From the Test Kitchen

Tetrazzini is a hearty casserole of chicken, mushrooms and pasta, traditionally combined in a rich cream sauce and then baked under a layer of breadcrumbs. An American dish, tetrazzini was named for a famous Italian opera singer who frequented the hotel restaurant where it was invented. In this recipe, we’re adding broccoli (quickly boiled alongside egg noodles, our pasta of choice), and swapping out cream for milk to lighten the sauce a bit. Finally, we’re mixing Parmesan cheese and a little olive oil into the panko breadcrumbs for the toasty crust, topping off the casserole with extra savory flavor.
