If your family doesn't care for peas, substitute frozen green beans or broccoli. By stirring in cubed cooked chicken or ham, this becomes a mouthwatering main dish with little effort.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 package (4.1 ounces) quick-cooking bow tie pasta and Parmesan/Romano sauce mix
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the water, milk and butter; bring to a boil. Stir in pasta and sauce mix. Cook over medium heat for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the peas, mushrooms and oregano; cook 3-4 minutes longer or until pasta is tender. Remove from the heat. Sauce will thicken upon standing.
