Sour Cream Noodle Bake

Thank you Pioneer Women for this new recipe! It was a great new Ground Beef recipe to add to my rotation! It was super yummy and will make great warmups! This made a TON! So, for a smaller family, you could probably 1/2 this and do it in a 9x9.

Also, next time I may add a LITTLE milk or cream to the sour cream and cottage cheese before I mix in the noodles. It's not that I thought it was dry, but I think it would be nice to have a little more sauce to it.

  • 1-¼ pound Ground Chuck or Ground Beef
  • 1 can 15-ounces Tomato Sauce
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 8 ounces, weight Egg Noodles
  • ½ cups Sour Cream
  • 1-¼ cup Small Curd Cottage Cheese
  • ½ cups Sliced Green Onions (less To Taste)
  • 1 cup Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Get water ready on the stove for boiling noodles.

Brown ground chuck or beef in a large skillet. Drain fat, then add tomato sauce. 1/2 teaspoon salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Stir, then simmer while you prepare the other ingredients.
Cook egg noodles until al dente. Drain and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine sour cream and cottage cheese. Add plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Add to noodles and stir. Add green onions and stir.
To assemble, add half of the noodles to a baking dish. Top with half the meat mixture, then sprinkle on half the grated cheddar. Repeat with noodles, meat, then a final layer of cheese.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until all cheese is melted.
Serve with crusty French bread.
