Give me 5 ingredient (6 if you count a side dish of frozen broccoli) and I’ll give you a family pleasing meal and enough leftovers for a few lunches. :) I love it!

I used a can of “healthy request” cream of mushroom soup to save some time and dressed it up with some fresh mushroom and worcestershire sauce. I love that combo. It makes a great gravy like base that goes wonderfully over noodles. Even the husband thinks so and let me tell you, he’s a gravy over noodles kind of guy. The toddler also liked tonight’s dinner even though he gave me all his mushrooms. :)Turkey and Mushrooms over Noodles

This kind of meal always reminds me that if I keep a few key ingredients on hand I can make a home cooked meal rather quicly. Would I rather not use the can of soup? Sure but in a pinch it’s a lifesaver after a long day of work.

Here’s what I did…

  • 12oz bag of whole wheat noodles
  • 20oz package of ground lean turkey
  • 10oz package of baby bella mushrooms
  • 10oz can of “healthy” cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce

Turkey and Mushrooms over Noodles - igredients

Cook the noodles according to the package.

While the noodles are cooking brown the turkey in a large skillet over medium high heat.

Clean and slice the mushrooms. Add them to the browning turkey. Stir in, cover and lower to medium. Cook for about 5 minutes. The mushrooms will cook and shrink a bit.

Uncover, add the soup, plus 1/2 can of water and the worcestershire sauce. Stir and and cook until just boiling.

Serve the turkey and mushrooms over the noodles and pair with a side of veggies.

This makes 6 servings I packed my extra 3 for lunches. :)

    Roni – do you then Freeze those lunches as is? Just wondering if they freeze well in those containers. And, are they just the regular ziploc disposable type containers?

    I love this idea of using 5 ingredients, plus you have leftovers from lunch! I’d really like to see more like this. PS – great food photography!

    Lola – I do! In those containers and they are the disposable types. Normally I bring them to work and let them sit out all day. By lunch they are mostly defrosted. I then pop them in the microwave and viola! Even better then a tv dinner! ;)

    I made this on Sunday, had one serving for lunch and froze the rest. I’ve thawed and reheated this 3 more times this week so I can say that it does freeze well (I don’t know why I was so surprised). Anyway, this is a good thing because my husband doesn’t care for mushrooms so this is definitely a recipe only I would eat. Easy, healthy and tasty! Thanks for the recipe.

    This was a great recipe! I wound up making it with lean beef because that’s all I had on hand…it was sort of like a lazy man’s Swedish Meatballs :) I seasoned the meat with some garlic, sweet onion, and montreal seasoning…very yummy with plenty of leftovers!

    This was pretty good, I needed to make something quick last night and this did the trick. However, I forgot the mushrooms, I was kicking myself when I got home from the store, so I replaced them with red onion and it worked. I also ended up just mixing it all together instead of just over the noodles, but luckily I saved some noodles on the side (just in case one of the girls didn’t like it) and I’m glad I did. The oldest who will usually eat anything had a fit! I’ve never heard her complain so much about a meal, but… my youngest who doesn’t eat anything more than plain pasta asked for more. I can’t win!.

    How would you get more of a gravy consistency with this, if that makes sense. Just go also cover the noodles and such.
