Best Chicken or Turkey Broth

I’m pretty sure I “stole” this recipe from Cook’s Illustrated. Although the wine is part of what makes this broth amazing, I often leave it out – I think it pairs better with many dishes without it.

Turkey Tetrazzini

Turkey Tetrazzini, a creamy casserole of turkey, mushrooms, sherry and pasta is like a little black dress; it never really goes out of style. Developed by a chef for a favorite Opera singer, the name Tetrazzini, is exotic, but the flavors are familiar and it is always a crowd pleaser.
