Childhood Recipe

Tonight I made a new dish for dinner. I am always weary about trying new recipes, as I don't know how they will turn out. This one, like most, I got from my mom, so I figured it had to be good.

I was right! As I ate this dish all of my memories of eating it as a child came back. Do you ever do that, or is it just me? Certain foods remind me of certain times in my life. This dish reminds me of eating dinner with my family at the kitchen table after a long day at school and practice.

So here it is, I usually am not a big casserole person but this one is so good!

Mom's Chicken Tetragzini:
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup whipping cream
2 tsp sherry
7oz spaghetti noddles, cooked
2 cups cubed chicken, cooked
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

-Melt butter in saucepan over low heat.
-Blend flour and seasonings.
-Stir in broth and cream.
-Heat to boiling, stirring, stir in sherry, chicken and noddles.
-Pour into ungreased casserole dish.
-Sprinkle cheese on top.
-Bake uncovered for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
- Enjoy!!
