DIRECTIONS 

Set timer for 30 minutes to begin.

25 minutes before dinner, start Garlic Broccoli & Carrot Medley. In a medium size microwavable bowl, put 2 (16-oz) bags frozen broccoli cuts. Cover with wax paper and cook for 8-minutes in the microwave.
22 minutes before dinner, start the Beefy Ranch Stroganoff. In a 12-inch, non-stick saucepan over high heat, bring 2-c water and 1-T ranch salad dressing mix to a full boil.
18 minutes before dinner, once liquid is to a full boil stir in 4-c No Yolk noodles. Bring to a low boil again, and then reduce heat to medium (just enough heat to keep liquid at a low boil). Cover and cook for 8-minutes or until pasta is tender.
16 minutes before dinner, stir the partially cooked broccoli. Cover with wax paper and cook for 6-minutes in the microwave.
14 minutes before dinner, if you want dinner rolls, now is the time to put them in a basket and place them on the dinner table along with light butter and jam.
10 minutes before dinner turn off heat to the pasta casserole and stir in 2 (12-oz) cans roast beef with gravy, 1 (7-oz) can drained sliced mushrooms, and 1/4-cc fat-free Ranch salad dressing. Cover and let set for 5-minutes to heat the roast beef and mushrooms.
8 minutes before dinner, stir into the pre-cooked broccoli: 1-T minced garlic (from a jar is fine), 1/4-c imitation butter flavored sprinkles, 1-teaspoon lite salt and 1 (8.25-oz) can drained sliced carrots. Stir until well mixed. Cook the broccoli 5-more minutes in the microwave, to heat the carrots.
5 minutes before dinner, spread 1/4-c of fat-free Ranch salad dressing over cooked pasta. Put lid back on casserole and continue letting it sit on the warm burner.
2 minutes before dinner, remove the Garlic Broccoli & Carrot Medley from the microwave. Stir and put on a heat pad on the dinner table.
1 minute before dinner, place the Beefy Ranch Stroganoff on a heat pad on the dinner table.
