Moose, Veggie, and Noodle Casserole

Sherry Blizzard

I had to use up the rest of the kale, zucchini, mushrooms and peppers but what to do? I didn't want pizza, I wanted pasta! It's cold today so I wanted something hearty that would stick to your ribs---like MOOSE! I just started putting in things that I like and it came out like a charm. This is kind of like a heartier version of beef strogaoff.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sprinkle shredded zucchini with salt and allow to drain for 20 minutes (pushing liquid through a strainer). Meanwhile, boil kale for 8 minutes then drain.
2
Saute bell pepper, onion, celery together. Add mushrooms, kale, zucchini and herbs. Remove to a large bowl. Add cooked meat to the bowl of vegetables (I used pressure canned moose chunks but roast, chicken, or even hamburger would work well.
3
Add soup, cottage cheese, sour cream and mozzarella. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add enough hot pasta water (if needed) to make a creamy sauce.
4
Add pasta and mix thoroughly. Pour into a sprayed 9 x 13 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
