What's for Dinner-Rice ala Lavre'

Another childhood staple was Rice ala Lavre' (though not sure on the spelling.

I love this dish because it is simple to make, which is great when you've had a busy day and three children running around!

Rice Ala Lavre'

What you need

Rice, or egg noodles if you prefer (that's tagliatele for our British cousins)
500-800 oz ground turkey or mince beef
2-3 onions depending on size, peeled and chopped
14.5oz can cream of mushroom soup
approx. 1 cup sour cream
1 tbsp. paprika
salt and pepper to taste

Toss the chopped onions into a skillet with the, defrosted, meat. Cook on medium heat until meat is brown and the onions are golden and soft. Drain if necessary, and put back into skillet, add mushroom soup and simmer for a few minutes. Add sour cream, parika and seasoning. Stir until combined. Serve over cooked rice or noodles with some french bread or biscuits (American biscuits not British cookies!)

While very simple to make, it is admittedly a bit lacking in nutritional value. Serve with green veg, cottage cheese or applesauce, or finely chop some carrots and add them to the dish with the onions. Color and nutrition! Yum!

About 45 minutes start to finish- Serves about 6 with the large quantity of meat.... enjoy
