    2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
    1 9-ounce package frozen French-style green beans
    1/2 cup coarsely chopped red or green sweet pepper
    1/4 cup water
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 12-ounce can evaporated fat-free milk
    4 teaspoons cornstarch
    1/2 of an 8-ounce package reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), cubed
    3 cups hot cooked rotini or fettuccine
    1 medium tomato, cut into wedges

    1. For sauce, in a medium saucepan combine mushrooms, green beans, sweet pepper, water, garlic, salt, and black pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 4 minutes or until vegetables are almost tender, stirring occasionally. Do not drain.
