Healthy Chicken Tetrazzini

“This Tetrazini is very good -- it does not taste like a lower fat version at all. I love chicken tetrazini, but almost all the versions I've seen are made with lots of butter (and therefore saturated fat), so I created this healthy version. I don't care for mushrooms, so I don't use them, but I will list them as an optional ingredient. This recipe makes alot -- I usually use two casserole dishes.”
