I got this recipe from a Fitness magaine and have been making it ever since. This is a good complete meal.

When cooking the beans in with the noodles it gives the noodles flavor plus when you drain and serve it is all mixed in with noodles. Be sure to put the whipping cream in right before you finish your cooking time. Add extra if you want more sauce and add extra chicken stock also for more sauce to put on the noodles. This is an excellent meal to have when guest come for dinner.
