This Salmon Casserole Is Quick, Easy

September 11, 1986

Casseroles are favorites of busy hostesses because they can be assembled in advance, then baked right before serving.

Salmon, spaghetti and a richly flavored sauce add up to Salmon Tetrazzini, ideal for brunch or a buffet. While the casserole bakes, heat some rolls and prepare a green salad to complete the menu.


1 (15 1/2-ounce) can salmon

1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced

1/2 cup chopped green onions

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup butter or margarine

1/4 cup flour

1 1/2 cups half and half

1/4 cup Sherry

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper
