1 24-ounce package sliced fresh mushrooms (such as button, cremini, and/or shiitake)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 8-ounce carton light sour cream

1 Cook noodles in boiling, lightly salted water according to package directions; drain. Return noodles to hot pan; cover and keep warm.

2 In an extra-large skillet cook mushrooms and garlic in hot oil over medium-high heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. (Reduce heat if mushrooms brown too quickly.) Remove mushrooms with slotted spoon; transfer to a medium bowl; cover to keep warm.

Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Serve mushroom mixture and sauce over cooked noodles. If desired, sprinkle with parsley.
