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

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.
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.
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.
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.
