  4. Very finely chopping onion, mushrooms and carrots in the food processor is not only fast—it makes the vegetables hard to detect for picky eaters. They also form the base for the sauce of this ground beef skillet supper. Make it a meal: Serve with a green salad.

  5. 6 servings, about 1 1/3 cups each | Active Time: 40 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes
  6. Ingredients

  7. 3 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
  8. 2 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
  9. 10 ounces white mushrooms, large ones cut in half
  10. 1 large onion, cut into 2-inch pieces
  11. 1 pound 90%-lean ground beef
  12. 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  13. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  14. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  15. 2 cups water
  16. 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium beef broth, divided
  17. 8 ounces whole-wheat elbow noodles, (2 cups)
  18. 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  19. 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  20. 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  21. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, or chives for garnish

  22. Preparation

  23. Fit a food processor with the steel blade attachment. With the motor running, drop garlic through the feed tube and process until minced, then add carrots and mushrooms and process until finely chopped. Turn it off, add onion, and pulse until roughly chopped.
  24. Cook beef in a large straight-sided skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the chopped vegetables, thyme, salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables start to soften and the mushrooms release their juices, 5 to 7 minutes.
  25. Stir in water, 1 1/2 cups broth, noodles and Worcestershire sauce; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
  26. Whisk flour with the remaining 1/4 cup broth in a small bowl until smooth; stir into the hamburger mixture. Stir in the sour cream. Simmer, stirring often, until the sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve sprinkled with parsley (or chives), if desired.
