This is the best ever healthy chicken tetrazzini recipe with mushrooms, and herbs. It's a quick put together in a one-dish meal. This whole grain Clean Eating tetrazzini pasta is a simple dish for everyone to enjoy.
Anyone can make this recipe (as long as they have all the ingredients that it calls for). It calls for simple ingredients and you just cook the noodles and put it all together into one casserole dish and bake it for 25 to 30 minutes and you have a meal everyone can enjoy together!
Everyone does meal prep differently, but I want to share a little about what we kind of do to make sure we are prepared for meals. Once a week we try to do all the shopping we need at various stores so hopefully (but doesn't always happen) we don't have to keep going back to the store. We decide what we want to eat each day for meals of the week and write it down and then make a grocery list based off of that.
We make sure to check what we have leftover in the fridge that we can use for meals as well. Then we go shopping for all the food we need for that week. When we get home we try to do any food prep we need to do, for example, portion sizing or cutting up veggies or fruit for snacks. This way the rest of the week goes so much smoother and we can enjoy more time in the week to relax and not stress about meal prepping so much.
If you really want to, you can leave the mushrooms out of this recipe. Seems like everyone I know either loves or hates mushrooms. Since my husband hates mushrooms, I usually make one small pan for him without the mushrooms and he likes it fine. Although, I do think he's missing out!
For this tetrazzini recipe, I love that I can make it the night before or in the morning and then throw it in the oven when we are ready to eat!
