One of the classics of Russian and global cuisine meets an American favorite! The Hamburger Stroganoff Skillet has the tender cooked pasta, hearty mushrooms, and creamy, herby, rich sauce of traditional stroganoff. Unlike traditional stroganoff, Hamburger Stroganoff Skillet uses ground beef to ensure every bite is meaty and extra savory. This is a one-pot meal that makes clean-up a snap, especially because there are rarely leftovers from a meal this delicious.


• 1 pound ground beef • 1 (10 ounce) package white mushrooms, halved • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil • 1/2 teaspoon paprika • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped • 1 carrot, diced • 1 small onion, chopped • 1 tablespoon tomato paste • 1 (15 ounce) can low-sodium beef broth • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce • 1 1/2 cups water • 2 cups penne pasta, uncooked • 2 ounces cream cheese, room temperature • 1/4 cup sour cream • 3 tablespoons chives, chopped • 3 tablespoons parsley, chopped • kosher salt, to taste • ground black pepper, to taste
