  • 1 tbsp. Butter
  • 10 oz. Sliced Mushrooms
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 3 c. Fresh Baby Spinach, rinsed

Instructions

  • For the Casserole
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Prepare egg noodles according to package directions allowing them to be al dente. Drain.

  • Combine the vegetable and chicken mixture, egg noodles and the prepared sauce, place in a casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
  • For the Sauce
  • In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until warm, not boiling.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and add the scallions. Stir for 1 minute then whisk in the flour forming a roux.
  • Add the chicken broth and cheese. Keep stirring until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth; then add the warmed heavy cream.
