  • 3 cup thinly sliced onions

  • 10 ounce beef sirloin, trimmed and cut into very thin strips

  1. In a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven or pot cook mushrooms in 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat until softened. Add onion and an additional 1 tablespoon oil; cook and stir over medium heat until mushrooms and onions are lightly browned. Reduce heat to low.

Cook noodles, uncovered, according to package instructions, return meat to Dutch oven the last 3 minutes of cooking.

  3. Meanwhile, if desired, preheat broiler. Arrange toasted bread on a baking sheet and sprinkle with cheese. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 1 minute or until cheese melts and turns light brown. Top each serving with a toasted bread slice.
