Taking Back Tetrazzini

Tetrazzini is one of those dishes that practical cooks love: It makes delicious use of leftover chicken or turkey and is bound to please your crowd. The traditional dish is a cozy casserole for sure, but with a rich cast of characters—cream, butter, cheese, pasta—that packs 670 calories and a day's worth of sat fat into just one helping. The New Year calls for a new casserole. How about the same comfort-filled yum for just 435 calories?
