Chicken Rotelle Tetrazzini

I found this recipe while I was cleaning out a stack of old stuff that I had in the back of my closet.  I don’t remember making it, but I must have because it was in a “this was a good recipe” stack.  So I decided to try it again, and now I know why I saved it – it’s really good, and Al really liked it a lot.  I also know why it was in an old, forgotten place, it’s a lot of work to make, and it makes a lot of dirty dishes!  But it has a great flavor that is unlike anything else that I make, and I will definitely make it again, just  as soon as I feel like washing a lot of dishes again – lol!!

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
