We made this beloved casserole healthier by omitting some of the butter and cheese and using whole grain pasta, too. The results are delicious!

Recipe Ingredients for LOW FAT CHICKEN TETRAZZINI

1 Nonstick cooking spray
1 Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 pound angel hair pasta, whole wheat
1/2 tablespoon butter
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
8 ounce sliced mushrooms
1 cup frozen peas
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 1/2 tablespoons flour
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup low-fat milk
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups chopped cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast
6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
4 tablespoons finely chopped chives, divided

Recipe Directions for LOW FAT CHICKEN TETRAZZINI

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray; set aside.

  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 5 minutes; drain well and transfer to a large bowl.

  3. Meanwhile, heat butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onions, mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in peas and cook 2 minutes more. Transfer to bowl with pasta and set aside.

  4. Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth then slowly whisk in broth and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in milk, nutmeg, salt and pepper and cook 1 minute more. Add milk mixture to bowl with pasta and mushroom mixture along with chicken, 4 tablespoons of the cheese and 2 tablespoons of the chives and toss gently to combine. Transfer to prepared dish, sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cheese and 2 tablespoons chives and bake until hot throughout and golden brown on top, about 30 minutes.
