This curly noodle lunch is one of our favourite bombproof last-minute meals. It turns practically no ingredients into real food in less than 15 minutes. You can use ground chicken or turkey instead of the beef.
500 g lean ground beef
1 85-g pkg Oriental noodle soup, any flavour
1 cup frozen corn, or mixed vegetables
1 540-mL can stewed tomatoes
In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook the ground beef, stirring until browned. Drain off fat, if any.
Sprinkle in the seasoning packet from the noodles, the corn or vegetables and the stewed tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Meanwhile, have your child crumble the noodles into a bowl. Add the crumbled noodles to the mixture in the skillet.
Cover and cook, stirring a couple of times, for about 10 minutes - until the ground beef is fully cooked and the noodles are tender.
