~* Recipe of the Week *~

~* Oyster Stew with Noodles *~

Need a quick meal that's cheap and easy to make? Try this little rendition of oyster stew and noodles that I sometimes cook up!

Servings: 2-4 (depending on amount of noodles made)
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

~1 can of Campbell's condensed Oyster Stew

~Milk or water (depending on directions given on soup can)

~1/2 box of thin spaghetti noodles (or noodles of your choice)

~Optional Seasonings: Salt, Lemon pepper, Minced garlic, Minced onion

Preparation and Cooking:

1.) Cook noodles in a pot of boiling water until they are tender. Put noodles in a collander to drain.

2.) While noodles are cooking, prepare and cook the oyster stew, following the directions given on the can.

3.) When oyster stew is finished cooking, keep on low heat and add the noodles.

4.) Stir soup and noodles until they are mixed together well.
-- I like having more stew than noodles so that it can be served in a soup bowl.

5.) If you do not want to serve it as a "stew" or "soup", then instead of adding the noodles into the oyster stew, put some on a plate and pour the stew over top of the noodles.

6.) Add minced garlic, minced onion, salt, and lemon pepper to taste if desired.

**Goes great with garlic bread!**

And there you have it, a quick and easy yet tastefully satisfying meal that your whole family can enjoy for under $5.00!! If you try this recipe, we'd love to hear from you, just comment below! My toddler loves it!  Enjoy!!

*Please note: I was not in any way asked, influenced, or paid by Campbell's Soup Company or any other third party company to use their product. This recipe is just something that I have put together myself, using this particular product.

Verse of the day: Luke 1:30-33

But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end." (NIV)
