Sour Cream Noodle Bake

Friday, May 20, 2011

So, this definitely isn't the most glamorous looking meal you've ever seen, but it has a wonderful taste, and best of all, it's about as easy as they come to throw together.  It was a quick 15-minute prep-time and 20 minutes of baking....perfect for a quick week-night meal that the whole family will enjoy!  Usually at least one of my kids has a complaint about what I'm cooking each night, not that they get to say anything insulting or get anything else to eat, but still they let it be known that whatever I've made isn't  their favorite.  Not this though....this won 100% approval down the ranks and I especially enjoyed the fact that my husband made it completely by himself (hence fewer pictures than usual)!  Serve it up with some French Peasant Bread and enjoy!

The ingredients:
1 lb.  ground beef (I used ground turkey)
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 small cans (8-ounces each) tomato sauce
1 can (15-ounces) whole-kernel corn, drained
1/2 tsp. salt
fresh ground pepper
1 pkg. (12-ounces) egg noodles
1-1/4 cups cottage cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup green onions, sliced
1 cup shredded cheese ( I used cheddar)

Directions:  Brown ground beef in skillet with garlic cloves. Drain fat and add tomato sauce, corn, salt and pepper and allow to simmer while you prepare the rest. Cook egg noodles al dente. Drain pasta and toss with the cottage cheese, sour cream, fresh ground pepper and green onions.

Add half the noodle mixture to a small baking dish (8x11-inch), top with half the ground beef, top with half the cheese. Finish with the remainder of the noodles, ground beef and top with remaining cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve with crusty bread (like French Peasant Bread).  Enjoy!

I saw this when Pioneer Woman posted about it. It looks delicious, I know casseroles are hard to 'make pretty', haha. I still think they are delicious looking even if it is a mess on a plate most times.

I have a similar recipe on my blog, my Amish ground beef and noodle casserole. If you enjoyed PW's recipe you might want to try it out. It is a bit different than her recipe, but still very good. :)

Gotta love a recipe where the whole family enjoys it! Of course it's even better if you can get your husband to make it:) I think it looks great.

My husband also cooks and this is exactly the type of dish he loves to make. I will have to save this for him. We would all love this here. It's so nice when everyone at the table is happy with their meal!!!
