8 ounces ground white meat turkey breast, extra lean and skinless
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
½ cup diced onions
2 packets mushroom gravy mix
½ cup light sour cream1 cup frozen peas, thawed


1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add noodles and follow cooking directions.  When fully cooked, drain pasta.
2. In a large non-stick pan or a pan coated with non-stick cooking spray, sauté the ground turkey breast, mushrooms and onions. Cook thoroughly over medium heat. Drain any liquid remaining.
3. Microwave peas or steam them on stove.
4. In a saucepan, cook mushroom mix as directed. Whisk in light sour cream when finished to avoid curdling.

    sodium level too high….there must be a way to use low salt broth and thicken it a bit instead….ready made mixes have too much sodium…I will try the recipe but modify it by eliminating the mushroom mix.

      Thank you, Rose. This recipe is appropriate for children and for adults who are not at risk for high blood pressure. However, reducing sodium content is always good; trial and error is the best approach.
