Yankee Noodle Dandy

"This is a white sauce with a definitely Northern feel. The Worcestershire gives it a little zing and the white wine adds some depth. This could easily be a "company" dinner if it was made with beef tips"

Ready In:




  • Brown the hamburger with onion and garlic; drain.
  • add the white wine and Worcestershire sauce let the meat soak up the liquids.
  • add the soup and the milk and allow to simmer while you cook the pasta adding more milk as needed to achieve the constancy desired.
  • drain noodles and toss with sauce and serve immediately.
  • I think mushrooms would be a nice addition, but my dh won't eat them.
  • This serves well with asparagus or green beans.

  1. We actually made this 2xs. First my DH didn't know we had cream soup, so he made the rest and added some recipe#133784 to soak up some of the liquide. The kids loved it! Then I made it as written (since I tagged in Please Review) with homemade cream soup and they liked it (not as much as the first version though). Didn't add mushrooms (DH hates them too!) I used whole wheat spaghetti and about 1/2 lb.
  2. We enjoyed this although next time I would decrease the Worcestershire sauce as a personal pref. I did add the mushrooms which we all liked. Let it take its time to thicken up and it makes a lovely gravy. I served it over noodles. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.


<p>&nbsp;<br /> <br />I'm a homeschooling mother of seven, a labor doula, childbirth educator and apprenticing midwife. <br /> <br />I love to cook, it's a great creative release for me. I usually use a recipe as a jumping off point, changing it as it works for us. <br />When I post a recipe if I don't site a source you can assume it was one of my own creations which is likely to be a simple one dish kinda of thing. With a large family I'm all about easy and tasty. A recipe doesn't get posted unless the kids loved it. <br /> <br />My star ratings <br />5 stars- Loved it! the family loved it and it will be added to my main cookbook <br /> <br />4 stars- Really liked it, may make a change or two and add it to my main cookbook <br /> <br />3 stars- Like it, may make it again, but it probably won't be a regular addition <br /> <br />2 stars- it was okay, but not likely to make it again with out many changes <br /> <br />1 star- not very good, would need to make several changes for our family's taste, won't make it again. <br /> <br />I'm very honest in my reviews and whereas I don't like giving low reviews I will. I won't try a recipe unless I think my family would enjoy it and I will review it.. <br /> <br />&nbsp;<br /><a href=http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/?action=view&amp;current=tish1.jpg target=_blank><br /></a>&nbsp;</p>
