|Mrs. Rock's Tetrazini
The Rocks were a large family that moved into a nearby neighborhood when I was a teenager in the early 1960's. Mrs. Rock sometimes would make this casserole to serve when her children's friends stayed for dinner.
1 stewing chicken (4-6 lb) (or 2 fryers)
Stew the chicken. Remove meat from bones and cut into bite size pieces. Melt butter in a heavy skillet and saute onion, celery, mushrooms and green pepper. Add olives, about 2/3 of cheese, pimento, almonds, peas and chicken. Season with salt and pepper.
Add hot drained macaroni and chicken stock and mix lightly. Place in a greased casserole. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake about one hour at 350ºF.
Serves 8 to 10.
