Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Turkey Tetrazzini

This is one of my favorite casseroles for when the weather is cold. It is creamy and rich, yet it has a little bit of a zip to it from the cayenne powder. People always ask for the recipe. It is nice to serve for company or to take places, because it easily serves 8-10 and can be made ahead - which means less last minute clean up! (Always a plus when serving others!) It takes a little more doing than some casseroles, but it's worth it!

6T butter
6T flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne powder
3C chicken broth
1C cream
1 lb of cooked pasta (I like to use wheat egg noodles)
4C cooked turkey pieces (or chicken)
1C sliced mushrooms
1 jar (4oz) diced pimentos, drained
1/4C fresh parsley
1/3 grated Parmesan

  • In a large dutch oven, melt butter and add flour, salt, pepper and cayenne, stir until smooth.

  • Gradually add broth, bring to a slow boil, stir 2 minutes or until thickened.

  • Remove from heat and add cream.

  • Mix about 2C of the sauce with the pasta and pour the sauced pasta into a greased 9x13 pan.

  • Add remaining ingredients, (except cheese) to remaining sauce and mix well. Carefully pour the saucy meat mixture over the noodles and top with cheese.

  • Cover and bake for 30 minutes, uncover and bake until golden.
