Vegetable Noodle Bowl with Mushrooms

Paula of bell’alimento shares her take on noodles with mushrooms.

The bulk of my college diet consisted of ramen noodles. I was on a strict budget and they definitely fit the bill. Although I still appreciate a good deal, my taste palette has changed just a bit since then. When I want something fast and filling I gravitate towards these Noodle Bowls.

This recipe comes together in less than 15 minutes and is packed full of veggies and our favorite, mushrooms! To save time, I like to use a pre-package bag of broccoli slaw for this recipe. The combo is made up of red cabbage, broccoli and carrots.

You’re also going to toss the seasoning packet that comes with the ramen noodles. We’re going to add our our sauce mixture that in my humble opinion, is much tastier and better for you.
