Ingredients

  • 10 ounce uncooked vermicelli
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound turkey breast cutlets
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages presliced mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 2/3 cup fat-free sour cream

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.

  2. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain.

  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle turkey with 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Add turkey to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until done. Remove turkey from pan.

  4. Add 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, sherry, and mushrooms to pan. Cover and cook 4 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.

  5. Combine peas, milk, sour cream, cheese, and soup in a large bowl. Chop turkey. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, pasta, turkey, and mushroom mixture to soup mixture, tossing gently to combine. Spoon mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

  6. Combine breadcrumbs and butter in a small dish, tossing to combine. Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture over pasta mixture. Bake at 450° for 12 minutes or until bubbly and thoroughly heated.
