3/4 Tbsp finely chopped onion
1 lb sliced mushrooms
1/4 tsp salt
to taste pepper
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 C white wine
1 C plain low-fat yogurt
6 C cooked macaroni, cooked in unsalted water

  1. Cut beef into 1-inch cubes. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a non-stick skillet. Sauté onion for 2 minutes.
  2. Add beef and saute for additional 5 minutes. Turn to brown evenly. Remove from pan and keep hot.
  3. Add remaining oil to pan; saute mushrooms.
  4. Add beef and onions to pan with seasonings.
  5. Add wine, yogurt; gently stir in. Heat, but do not boil.
  6. Serve with macaroni.

Note: If thickening is desired, use 2 teaspoons cornstarch; calories are the same as flour, but it has double thickening power. These calories are not figured into the nutrients per serving.
