Sour Cream Noodle Bake

This is a quick and easy recipe when you are looking for some good old comfort food. I really like the use of cottage cheese in this recipe since it is something I usually have around. Give this a try to warm you up as it starts to get cooler outside.

From: The Pioneer Woman


1-¼ pound ground chuck
1 can 15-ounces tomato sauce
½ teaspoons salt
8 ounces, weight egg noodles
½ cups sour cream
1-¼ cup small curd cottage cheese
½ cups Sliced Green Onions (I omitted)
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Brown ground chuck in a large skillet. Drain fat, then add tomato sauce. 1/2 teaspoon salt and plenty of 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 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.
