Chicken Tetrazini

Mima's made this recipe when we came to visit, serving us at that long green table with the round bamboo chairs in Stonington. The funny thing is, it's a bad memory because I loath mushrooms just like my sister Mush! Regardless, SP is a mushroom lover just like much of the rest of the world, so I should share this recipe in spite of my dislikes! :) Mima noted that this makes an excellent buffet dish too.

2 packages spaghetti, cooked
2 lbs mushrooms (boil and reserve 1/2 cup of the water)
2 chickens
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup flour
2 Tablespoons butter
I package Hollandaise sauce, made according to directions (Mima said that Kraft's mix is excellent!)
shredded cheddar cheese

  1. Boil 2 chickens and then cut meat off in small pieces.
  2. In a sauce pan over medium heat, make a cream sauce using butter, flour, and cream.
  3. Add the reserved mushroom water.
  4. Add prepared Hollandaise sauce to the cream sauce.
  5. Place chicken and mushrooms in a casserole dish.
  6. Place spaghetti around edges.
  7. Pour sauce over spaghetti.
  8. Cover top with cheese and bake until brown.
