We have a week left to go in school before we get two whole weeks together. I am already making plans to play board games, bake some festive treats, watch some holiday movies and put together our annual holiday puzzle. With the weather getting colder and colder, dinner is bringing warmth and comfort. Choosing meals in the winter is a bit different than in the spring or summer and many of my favorite dishes include noodles.
Last week I shared my Spicy Noodles with Mushrooms and Zucchini recipe that has become a family favorite! This week I wanted to go a familiar route. My mom would make these amazing homemade noodles with mushrooms and spinach and I thought I would try and pay homage to it with another amazing recipe featuring Reames Homestyle Egg Noodles.
I love this recipe because many of these ingredients are familiar and favorites of mine. Spinach is a tough sell at my house at times so when I have the chance to throw it in a pasta, I take it. My kids love noodles, so selling them spinach wasn’t has difficult this time around.
- 1 package Reames Homestyle Egg Noodles
- 2 cups spinach
- 8 ounces sliced portabella mushrooms
- 4 ounces grated Gruyere cheese (or any other white cheese that you like)
- 3 Garlic cloves, minced
- ½ white onion diced
- 1 Cup Chicken Stock
- 1 Cup milk (I used 2%)
- 2½ tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Cook noodles according to package instructions.
- In medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, pepper, chicken stock and milk.
- When there is about 12 minutes left for the noodles, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add sliced mushrooms and onion and sauté for 6 minutes. After 6 minutes add the garlic and sauté for 2 more minutes.
- Pour your wet mixture into the skillet and bring to a simmer. Stir occasionally until thickened, about 3-4 minutes.
- Reduce heat to low.
- Add cheese and whisk until melted.
- Stir in spinach.
- Add drained noodles to the skillet and combine.
This is a very mild flavored dish that will be a hit with all members of your family. While this recipe doesn’t contain meat, I feel like some shredded chicken would work great in it.
You can find Reames Frozen Noodles at your local grocery store in the frozen aisle. There are so many different ways you can prepare these noodles from an Asian flair to a classic florentine, the possibilities are endless. I already have plans to make a leftover turkey noodle soup with holiday leftovers!
