3 Tbsp vinegar, tarragon-flavored 
1 pound(s) fresh mushroom(s), sliced (about 6 cups) 
1 1/2 cup(s) fat free chicken broth 
1 cup(s) fat free skim milk 
4 tsp arrowroot powder 
1 tsp dried thyme 
1 tsp dried tarragon 
1/2 tsp table salt, or more to taste

Cook noodles according to package directions with added salt; drain and set aside.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 9 X 13-inch pan with cooking spray.

Heat 1 tablespoon of margarine and vinegar together in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms; cook until soft, stirring, about 5 minutes. Remove mushrooms and set aside.

Whisk broth, milk and arrowroot together in a medium-size saucepan until smooth. Stir in remaining tablespoon of margarine; set over medium heat. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until thickened and boiling, about 8 minutes. Stir in thyme, tarragon, salt and pepper. Remove sauce from heat; stir in sour cream.

Combine cooked noodles, chicken, mushrooms, peas and carrots, and sauce together in a large bowl. Pour into prepared pan; sprinkle with grated topping. Bake until bubbling and hot, and top is starting to brown, about 20 minutes. Slice into 8 pieces and serve.
