One Pot Beef Stroganoff

Don't you love meals that can be made in one pot, and take less than 30 minutes to throw together? Simple, to make, with so little clean up... a perfect meal for a busy day when everyone is tired, but dinner still needs to be made.  I think that is probably why "Hamburger Helper" was so popular when in he 70's and 80's.  This delicious Beef Stroganoff is one of those recipes, and it is also a "Skinny Recipe" that is easy on the waist line,  but so delicious, and satisfying, that your whole family will love it.
