3
cups uncooked extra-wide egg noodles (5 oz)
2 1/2
cups water
1/2
teaspoon Italian seasoning
1
jar (1 lb 10 oz) tomato pasta sauce (any variety) or marinara sauce
1
jar (4.5 oz) Green Giant™ sliced mushrooms, drained

  • 1 In 4-quart Dutch oven, cook beef, onion and bell pepper over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • 2 Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 10 to 12 minutes or until noodles are tender.

Expert Tips

For super-speedy cooking, keep bags of purchased frozen chopped onions and bell peppers available in your freezer.

For a more pizza-flavored dish, use two 15-ounce cans of pizza sauce instead of the pasta sauce and add 1/2 cup pepperoni.
