The ultimate family-friendly pasta dinner recipe, this creamy, comforting beef stroganoff comes together in just 20 minutes!
I don’t know about you, but this time of year I often crave comfort food that warms me up from the inside out. Over the years, I’ve developed countless pasta recipes that are not only easy to make but are packed with other good-for-you ingredients like Whole Wheat Pasta with Sausage, Peas, and Ricotta, Sausage and Kale Gnocchi Pasta, or Spicy Tuna Pasta Puttanesca. Ready in about 20 minutes or less, you really can’t go wrong with a quick and easy pasta recipe during a busy weeknight.
Recently I partnered with my good friends at Stonyfield Organic to create a protein-packed Beef Stroganoff made with their creamy, full-fat whole milk Greek yogurt. Traditionally made with sour cream, I prefer using Stonyfield Organic Greek yogurt which contains more protein and fewer calories. Yogurt is one of those highly versatile products that I love to keep on hand for all sorts of surprising and unexpecting recipes such as this one.
To prepare, heat a deep skillet over medium-high heat and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper and saute until a light crust forms.
Next, saute the mushrooms in the same pan along with thyme and Worcestershire sauce before sprinkling with a little flour. This flour will allow the sauce to thicken later.
Meanwhile, you’ll cook the noodles according to package instructions then add them into the pan along with the reserved beef and creamy yogurt.
Want to make it even creamier? Add more yogurt! Just be sure to add a pinch of salt to balance the tanginess.
When cooking, I do my best to incorporate as many quality ingredients as possible. That’s why I love using products like whole milk Greek yogurt from Stonyfield.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I use a yogurt lower in fat?
While whole milk yogurt delivers the most creaminess, low and non-fat varieties work in this recipe as well! Just be sure to use Greek yogurt instead of traditional yogurt.
How long does this recipe keep?
This recipe will last 3-4 days in an airtight container in the fridge. Or, make a large batch, and keep it in the freezer up to 3 months.
Can I substitute beef?
Feel free to substitute beef with any other protein such as chicken or shrimp.
What kind of noodles should I use?
Wide egg-noodles work best. However, any kind you have on hand will do! Increase the fiber content by using whole wheat varieties.
Can this be made vegetarian?
To make this dish vegetarian just swap the beef out for a vegetarian alternative, leave it out altogether, or opt for my vegetarian Pasta Primavera with Sautéed Vegetables recipe instead. Similar in taste, sautéed vegetables are tossed with whole wheat pasta, olive oil, garlic, and creamy Stonyfield yogurt.
