What is tetrazzini?

Tetrazzini is a dish that typically contains pasta, chicken, and vegetables in a cream sauce. You can make it with many different types of pasta, but it is commonly made with thin spaghetti, such as spaghettini.

This dish is named after an Italian operatic soprano, Luisa Tetrazzini, and, this is a gluten-free and vegan version of the classic tetrazzini recipe. 

The mushrooms and zucchini replace the chicken in this plant-based recipe, and the dish is bound together with a creamy dairy-free sauce. 

The best part, this tetrazzini is just as flavourful and satisfying as the original dish, but it’s lighter and healthier.

Plants are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber, all essential for good health. Furthermore, plant-based diets have been shown to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
