Skillet Turkey Tetrazzini and a giveaway!

Did you know that Hellmann’s® Mayonnaise can help transform your holiday turkey leftovers into a delicious meal?

Neither did I until I recently tried this delicious Skillet Turkey Tetrazzini recipe. The creaminess of the dish comes from 1/2 cup of Hellmann’s® Mayonnaise. I never would have thought to use mayo this way, but now it has me thinking of other fun ways to use it.

Hellmann’s® is on a mission to help moms re-think main dish meals and leftovers by offering easy, delicious recipes that are great for the busy holiday season, such as turkey casserole,“stuffing” crusted turkey cutlets and this skillet turkey tetrazzini.

You can take a break from the holiday hustle and bustle and join in each week at as Turkey Casserole goes head-to-head with other tasty, juicy turkey recipes.

Skillet Turkey Tetrazzini
  • 2 Tbsp. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® Spread (I just used butter)

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped

  • 1-1/4 cups chicken broth (I used 1¼ cup water and crushed a bouillon cube)
  • ½ cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
  • 2 cup cut-up cooked turkey (chicken would also work)
  • 8 ounces linguine, cooked and drained
  • 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Melt spread in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat and cook mushrooms and onion, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until vegetables are golden. Reduce heat to medium.
  2. Stir in garlic and flour and cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes.
  3. Whisk in broth and Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise; bring to a boil.
