Turkey Tetrazzini

America's Test Kitchen recipes never disappoint - - they often take forever and a day to prepare, but they are delicious. One recipe I really like for a quick, hearty dinner is their Turkey Tetrazzini. It's almost as simple as one of those boxed dinners like Pasta Roni and this is much cheaper and better for you.

Turkey Tetrazzini
2 tbs. butter
1/2 onion finely chopped
3 cups egg noodles
2 cups low sodium chicken broth (I used water and chicken base/boulion)
1 cup whole milk
1 cup peas
2 cups chopped cooked turkey, chicken, ham, or tuna

Saute onion in butter about 5 minutes and add the noodles and liquid. Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally about 10 minutes. Add turkey, chicken, ham, or tuna and peas. Heat an additional 5 minutes more.

*The original recipe calls for button mushrooms sauted with the onion and then removed from the pan.
