On Sara's assigned dinner night many months ago, Sara decided to be creative and create her own recipe. I gave her a couple tips for seasonings that would work and this is what she came up with. I know there's an official name for it similar to other recipes, but I can't remember what it is, so we call it Cream of Mushroom & Bow Ties. Sara made it several times last year and it became a family favorite, so I decided to write down the ingredients as best I could considering everything Sara did was estimate. Here it is:
Cream of Mushroom & Bow Ties:
Prepare a pot of water to boil for the noodles. To feed six of us, I use 8 handfuls of bow tie noodles.
In a large skillet:
2 lbs. meat (sausage or meatballs work great)
1/2 onion, chopped
Brown the meat and the onions together, then drain the grease. If you're using premade meatballs, don't add them until the sauce is made. Then add:
1 tsp minced garlic
1 container sliced mushrooms
Let the mushrooms cook for a minute or two then add:
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 can water
1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
1/4 tsp. pepper
Simmer the sauce until the noodles are done. Drain the noodles and combine them with the sauce and mix together gently. Enjoy!
This was such a hit tonight that I didn't even have to put away left overs! Which for me, is cause for celebration!
If you know the real name of this dish, please tell me!
