"This was a common meal in the 1970s. Everyone made something like this with buttered wide egg noodles, (ok they used margarine) instant mashed potatoes or instant rice. Women were working and this was fast, and they used peas, corn or green beans frozen or canned. Now my mom did not add mushrooms, as a matter of fact she used cream of celery soup. lol"

A perfect weeknight meal... FAST and easy to make. I did add some onion, as I had some sliced up that needed to be used -- and I used sliced baby cremini mushrooms instead of canned ones (also had some that needed to be used). The sauce was thick and delicious with white rice and green beans. Will definitely make this again. Made for Billboard Tag in the forums.
