My family loved this simple dish--and no one will ever guess this is "diet" food! If following the WW flex plan this is 5 points per serving. If you can't find the reduced-fat products, I add one point for each reg product I use (although this may be off a bit, I think it comes out close). Recipe source: WW Magazine (January 2008)

We really enjoyed this dish.... I used no yolk noodles because that is what we had on hand...I also used 1 lb of ground beef.... Everything else I followed exactly.... This was very simple to prepare.... Next time I fix it, I'll probably use some garlic in with the mushroom mixture and use 1 1/2 lb of ground beef.... We like a lot of meat when we fix one-dish meals.... Thanks so much for sharing this....
