The original Tetrazzini was made with thin spaghetti, but we find fusilli or gemelli easier to eat. If you prefer, use 8 ounces of thin spaghetti #9, but break the noodles in two before cooking. This dish is equally tasty made with leftover or rotisserie chicken, cooked shrimp, or chunk white (albacore) tuna. Prep: 15 minutes; Cook: 14 minutes; Bake: 25 minutes.
