EASY MEXICAN NOODLE CASSEROLE

Does anyone else have fond memories of noodle casseroles?

I know I do. Whether my mom or grandma was creating the meal, it was always delicious and comforting.

The thought of those meals warms my heart and reminds me of all of the good times I had sitting around the table with family enjoying a home cooked meal.

Today’s Easy Mexican Noodle Casserole puts a fresh, creative spin on your favorite noodle casseroles using No Yolks Noodles , ground turkey, a rainbow of vegetables, warm spices and cheese.

This Easy Mexican Noodle Casserole comes together easily and is a family favorite. It also makes really great leftovers, which in my house is the key for busy nights and weekday lunches.

The ground turkey creates a lighter dish but feel free to use ground beef or leave the meat out all together. You can also add a variety of additional ingredients including black beans, bell peppers and avocado as a garnish.

My favorite noodles to use in soups and casseroles are these No Yolks Broad Noodles.

I love adding them to a Spicy Asian Chicken Noodle Soup, a Healthy Tuna Noodle Casserole or a Cream of Chicken and Noodle Casserole.

No Yolks Noodles are so versatile, which is why I always have a bag in my pantry for those last minute meals. I like to think creatively when using No Yolks Noodles for things other than just casseroles.

Some creative dishes you could add them to include Miso and French Onion Soup, Noodles with Walnut Pesto and Kale or even a Sriracha Cheesy Noodle dish. Who doesn’t love spiced up noodles?
