Add 2 cups water, one-half cup "Helper" mix and two cups uncooked egg noodles and stir. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered for 15-20 minutes or until noodles are tender. Top with one-half cup "light" sour cream or plain yogurt. Serve immediately. Hearty Potato Casserole Brown one pound ground beef or turkey and drain off the fat. Add three-fourth cup water, six peeled potatoes (sliced very thin), one cup of frozen mixed peas and carrots and one-half cup plus 1 tablespoon seasoning mix. Simmer covered 20-30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir, uncover and cook until excess water is evaporated. Skillet Lasagna In a large skillet, brown one pound of lean ground beef, crumble.

This idea is very very smart! And economical as well! I am going to make some tonight. ****I am pretty much guessing that that the ingredient that is listed as unsalted chicken or beef is actually bouillon? Lord, I hope so...that's what I am using anyway.
