This "pasta matchmaker" really is the coolest idea y'all. Not only do I not have to worry about what I'm going to make for dinner. But it legit lays out all the ingredients you need, and step-by-step instruction for what to do. AND AND AND when you take the handful of questions it caters the recipe to your lifestyle -- such as how many people you're cooking for or the occasion.

Literally, so excited about this. And, I was matched with a delicious recipe that even works with the healthier lifestyle we are working towards (but no worries, there's delish mac n cheese recipes too).
SO let's dive in.
16 ounces Mueller’s® Wide Egg Noodles
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1-1/2 cups frozen chopped vegetable seasoning blend (onion, celery, bell pepper)
1 cup sliced carrots
2 cups ground cooked turkey
32 ounces reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon parsley flakes
salt to taste
1. In a medium sauce pan, melt butter and add all the vegetables until they are tender.
2. Add turkey meat to the vegetables and cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
3. Add the chicken broth, noodles, pepper and parsley to the sauce pan. Bring to a boil, and then cook on low for 7 to 10 minutes, until noodles are tender.
*I did this a little longer and the noodles soaked up pretty much all of the broth. It was super delish this way just not super soupy. So I'd recommend adding extra chicken broth or really watching how fast the broth is evaporating/getting soaked up.
These noodles can easily be found at your local BI-LO on the pasta aisle. There is a picture at the bottom of this post for reference.
Alright now it's your turn.
