A lot of combined recipes and a lot of tasting led me to this vegged-up comfort meal. A few more steps round out this one-dish meal with a full complement of sauteed vegetables. You can change or expand the toppings to include panko or bread crumbs with a little butter, crushed potato chips, paprika, etc.

Directions

  1. Spray a 2.5 quart casserole dish with cooking spray. Prep vegetables.
  2. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil, then toss in kosher salt. Add egg noodles, stir and boil until al dente or just underdone; drain well in colander.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet to medium heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil, then add onions, garlic, bell pepper and mushrooms. Saute about 6 minutes or until onions begin to soften.
  4. Add frozen mixed vegetables, bouillon granules and up to 1/8 cup water. Stir well, bring to boil, cover & simmer 7-10 minutes or until tender. At end, drain liquid and season with salt and pepper. Re-cover and set aside.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
