Ingredients

  • 2 cups egg noodles
  • 1 cup chicken flavored TVP
  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried vegetable mix
  • 1 tablespoon dehydrated minced onions
  • 1/3 cup instant non-fat dry milk
  • 1/3 cup powdered cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Instructions

  • Place noodles, TVP, vegetables and onions in clean quart-sized mason jar.  Shake to settle contents.
  • Add milk, powdered cheese, butter powder and Italian seasoning.  Shake well to get ingredients to sift down and settle in empty spaces between larger ingredients.
  • Place new canning lid on top of jar. Using wide-mouth attachment for a FoodSaver, vacuum seal lid onto jar following instructions from your FoodSaver manual. (You can also insert an oxygen absorber before putting on lid if you'd like.)
  • Remove vacuum attachment and put ring on. Tighten by hand, but don't over tighten.
  • Label and date. Store in cool, dry location.

To cook:

  • Gently pry lid off of jar and discard. Remove oxygen packet (if used). Empty contents of jar into large skillet.  Add 3 1/2 cups water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  Reduce heat and simmer for 12-15 minutes, stirring frequently.  Remove from heat and let sit for 3-5 minutes to allow sauce to thicken.  Serve.
