Veggie Noodle Skillet Dinner



I love tweaking recipes to make them a bit more nutritious for my mostly vegetarian family. 

The photo pictured above is a recipe I found online that called for chicken.  I tweaked it and made something similar minus the cheese and chicken.  The family loved it and I decided to share it with you.  It's super easy to make for those after-work thoughts of "what should I cook for dinner?"

Since we love fresh, homemade meals, this was perfect.  I think you'll think so too!

Faith's Veggie Noodle Skillet Dinner

1 pkg of yolk-free egg noodles
1/4 c. coconut or olive oil
1 c shredded carrots
1 1/2 c. chopped broccoli
1/4 c. chopped red onion
2 cloves garlic, minced 
1 Tbsp. dried basil
1 can low-fat cream of chicken soup
1/2 c. skim milk
1/2 c. chopped red pepper

  • Cook noodles according to package directions, drain and keep hot.
Meanwhile (while noodles are cooking):

  • Saute garlic, onion, carrots, broccoli and peppers in the oil until crisp-tender.
  • Stir in cream of chicken soup and the milk.  Mix thoroughly.
  • Add the dried basil and toss.
  • Pour noodles into a large serving bowl or platter and add the veggie mix.
  • Toss gently.
Serve immediately with fresh fruit like  a melon salad.  (we like cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon, cut into chunks or use a melon baller).
