Pork & Mushroom Sauté

Recipe from Amanda Garbutt

As soon as I saw this recipe I knew that it just needed a few simple tweaks to get the family excited about this meal all over again. I know how hard it can be to get picky eaters to eat their greens. During the week when I want to serve up a quick and nutritious lunch I look for recipes like this one. With an easy trick, vegetables are transformed into delicate ribbons that look more like pasta than veggies. Also, by substituting cream for half of the cream of mushroom soup you are cutting the sodium in half. Best of all, by slicing the vegetables and cubing the pork we take this dish’s cooking time from 30 to 20 minutes!
