Nutrition Profile:


  • 8 ounces whole-wheat egg noodles

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 pound mixed mushrooms, such as cremini, shiitake, portobello and/or button, sliced

  • 1 small yellow onion, diced

  • ½ teaspoon caraway seeds

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage or 1 teaspoon dried

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon paprika (see Tip)

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 1 cup dry white wine

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain.

  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, onion and caraway seeds; cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown, about 12 minutes.

  3. Stir in sage, garlic and paprika; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds more. Add wine and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream, salt and pepper. Serve over the noodles, garnished with parsley, if desired.


Tip: Made from ground dried peppers, paprika can vary in flavor and heat based on which pepper it's made with. The standard paprika you find at the store is usually sweet Hungarian style, which is unsurprisingly made from sweet peppers. If you like a little more heat, choose hot Hungarian.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
