Beef Stroganoff with Whole Wheat Rotini

Beef Stroganoff
Whole wheat noodles give some fiber punch.

What a perfect Fall dinner. Beef stroganoff with whole wheat rotini. The mixed green side salad with garden fresh tomato & cucumber slices where just an added perk.

Initially, this may seem over the top in calories. Not so!  A 1/2 cup serving of cooked noodles (as pictured) is only 150 calories. Topped off with 2/3 cups of the stroganoff, you’re only adding another 190 calories. Come on, now… 340 calories for this deliciousness.
I sprinkled grated Parmesan cheese over the dish for added flavor though it wasn’t necessary. A teaspoon of the cheese was a 10 calorie indulgence. Onions and dehydrated mushrooms were the only addition to the stroganoff. The broth was made with roasted beef base. A dollop of low-fat sour cream…. hmmm… add 30 calories.
Mixed Green Salad
Mixed green salad drizzled in balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

This is a blimpy girl “splurge dish”. I lighten up the calories at lunch so I can indulge at dinner. Grab the Recipe
