One of the things that makes me super happy is finding base recipes that I can play around with. So this is the second recipe using the SOS mix. You can find the original recipe in the booklet Soup or Sauce SOS Mix put out by the Utah State University extension office which is located here.
Knowing my families tastes there is no way I could of put this on the table without tweaking it. My goal was for a creamier sauce with a little more flavor. I thought it was great without the extras added in the sauce but I'm just one of those people that has a hard time not tweaking.
1 pound lean ground beef or turkey
3 cups water
1/3 cup SOS Mix
2-4 shakes Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 small onion, diced

12 oz bag wheat egg noodles (or any you prefer)
1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
8 oz low-fat cream cheese, softened (optional)

In the meantime, boil egg noodles according to package directions. Drain and have ready.
In a small sauce pan, whisk together SOS mix and 3 cups of water. Cook until desired thickness. You may need to adjust SOS mix to achieve desired thickness. Whisk in paprika, Worcestershire sauce, softened cream cheese (optional) and sour cream.
