Tetrazzini is a pasta bake dish with diced chicken, turkey, or even shellfish in a buttery cream sauce. The famous American meal was developed by chef Ernest Arbogast in honor of the Italian opera singer Luisa Tetrazzini, who made her debut at his hotel in San Francisco in the early 1900s and went on to become a household name.
