Sour Cream Noodle Bake


I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and thought it sounded like a good way to use up the extra egg noodles I had from the Cheesy Chicken Casserole.  It didn't take long to make, and it tasted delicious.  It was creamy, cheesy and all around yummy!  Chicken Legs especially loved this.  He has requested it again next week.  I thought it tasted like a cross between lasagana and the Spasagna I made a while back.  Either way, we both really enjoyed this.





Sour Cream Noodle Bake
slightly adapted from Allrecipes.com
(Printable Recipe)

1 (8 ounce) package wide egg noodles
1 pound lean ground beef
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350.

Cook noodles according to package directions.  Drain and set aside.

Brown meat; drain off fat and return to skillet.  Add pepper, garlic salt and tomato sauce. Stir and simmer for 5 minutes.

Mix together cottage cheese, sour cream, and noodles.

Lightly spray a 9x9 casserole dish with cooking spray.  Spread noodle mixture in bottom of pan.  Top noodles with meat sauce.  Sprinkle cheese on top of casserole and bake for 20-25 minutes.

    1. I was wondering if I could use cream cheese in place of the cottage cheese.

  4. this looks delicious! I love your recipes.

    Just an FYI, not sure if this happens to anyone else. Any time I open your page, it loads for a minute then skips to some virus download thing. And any time I pin something from your site, pinterest claims the site looks like a virus. It's done this on 2 computers for me. Again, not sure if anyone else has had it happen.

  6. I haven't had any issues with the blog. I've run scans and there aren't any viruses or malware on it. I don't have any issues on my work computer either.

  7. Leigh - you could substitute ricotta for the cottage cheese.

  8. Just wanted you to know that my friends and I LOVE your blog. Anytime I bring a dish somewhere and someone asks where I got the recipe, I always say, "Plain Chicken." Then that person starts following you. We are obsessed here in North Carolina (Greensboro Area). I don't know if you can keep track of all of us, but you are well loved here in these parts. Just thought you'd like to know!

  11. How do you think this would freeze? If well, how long would you bake it? thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Kristen - I think this would freeze fine. Just bake it covered for about 15-20 minutes and then uncover it and bake an additional 20-25 minutes.

  18. I have been following your blog for about a year now, and I just wanted to tell you that a Plain Chicken recipe is on the table at my house at least twice a week! I used to get so tired of cooking the same things over and over-- your blog has remedied that for me! Thanks for all the great recipes!

  19. Walkerfam00 - I am so glad to hear this!! This is exactly why I started the blog. I was tired of eating the same thing all the time and needed some variety.

    You made my day!

  20. What about cream cheese in place of the cottage cheese?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lisa - I think you could do cream cheese instead of cottage cheese.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I make something like this. I use cream cheese instead of cottage cheese and it is amazing. Use a block of cream cheese and 8 oz of sour cream. Sometimes I use a little more sour cream but still amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Toni - I can't wait to try the cream cheese version! Sounds yummy!

  24. I grew up eating. Its definately comfort food for me! My mom and grandma always called it lasagna. Lol

  25. I made this tonight and it was HUGE hit with my whole family! My husband and I, 2 teenage daughters and 9 year old son. Thank you!

  26. This is one of my favorite recipes! I make it with ground turkey & light sour cream & cottage cheese to make it low-cal! I also use the basil, garlic & oregano tomato sauce, and use 2 cans rather than one! We like it a little saucy. We call it our low-fat lasagna! It satisfies that craving, while keeping your calories in check! :)

  27. THANK YOU for this! My boyfriend is a huge pasta fan, so this went over really well with him. He said it may very well be his favourite thing that I make. I put green peppers and onions into the meat sauce too, which gave us some veggies and crunch! DELISH. love it, will make again, many times. Can so easily be made vegetarian, too!

  28. Another amazing dish. This was today's dinner. My family raved over it and seconds were issued out as well. Hopes theres some left for the hubby:)

  29. This looks good! I think it will be on our dinner table this evening! Thank you!

  30. Made this yesterday. I thought it was good. It is similar to my mom's Hamburger Noodle Bake recipe which I think I like better because while eating this dish, I was missing the scallions and the cream cheese that is in my mom's recipe:

    HAMBURGER NOODLE BAKE

    1 pound hamburger
    1 clove garlic (or garlic salt to taste)
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon sugar
    2 (8 oz) cans of tomato sauce
    1 cup sour cream
    1 (3 oz) package of cream cheese
    4 to 6 scallions
    1 (8 oz) package of egg noodle
    1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

    Fry hamburger till brown; drain fat. Chop garlic until fine and mix with salt, pepper, sugar, and tomato sauce. Add to meat; cover and cook slowly 15-20 min. In a bowl mix the sour cream, cream cheese, and chopped scallions. Cook noodles according to package; drain. Mix everything together and pour in the dish; sprinkle over the cheddar cheese. Bake for 20 min in preheated oven at 350. (Instead of mixing everything together, you can also layer. Noodles, cream cheese mixture, meat sauces; and repeat.)

  31. Cheryl - sounds great! I am going to try it next week. Thanks for sharing!

  32. Okay... I'm reporting in! I made it today for lunch for my kiddos! And I quote: "MOM! FINALLY you made something we like!" lol I make good stuff all the time, of COURSE, but this really appealed to their kid palates. :)

  33. We don't like cottage cheese. What would you substitute for it? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Austie - LOL! I'm so glad it was a hit.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sherry - I don't like cold cottage cheese either, but it is great baked in dishes. If you don't like the curds, you can blend it in the food processor.

    If you still don't want to give it a try, you can substitute ricotta or double the sour cream.
