Chicken Tetrazzini

Growing up, I always loved when my mom made chicken tetrazzini - something about the crispy melted cheese on top... yum! I never realized how easy and quick it is to make, and it makes enough for dinner for multiple people (and lunch the next day too)!

Chicken Tetrazzini
1/4 c butter
1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 t pepper
1 c chicken broth
1 c whipping cream
2 T sherry or wine
1 package spaghetti (or any long stringy pasta)
2 c chicken (or more, depending on taste)
bag of grated parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 350. Boil pot of water (for pasta). Begin cooking chicken, cut into cubed pieces. Cook pasta.
For sauce (takes approximately 10 mins), melt butter over low heat. Blend in flour and seasonings. Continue to cook over low heat, stirring, until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in broth and cream. Return to heat and boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Stir sauce, pasta, and chicken together. Pour into a greased casserole dish (13x9). Sprinkle top with cheese.
Bake uncovered, approximately 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and top is golden.
