I am a sucker for a good Italian casserole and this Italian Noodle Casserole is no exception. It was AMAZING! It is kind of like a combination of my Amish Country Casserole and my Cream Cheese Lasagna. There are elements of each casserole in this recipe, and it is fan-freaking-tastic! Hamburger, cottage cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, tomato sauce, mozzarella and cheddar cheese. All my favorites in one dish!

This recipe makes a good bit of food. It was enough for us to have it for dinner and reheated for lunch and dinner the next night. This would also make a great freezer meal. Assemble the casserole, cover it with foil and freeze it unbaked. When you are ready to cook the casserole, let it thaw in the fridge all day and then bake it. You may need to add a few minutes to the baking time if the casserole isn't 100% thawed when you put it in the oven.

  1. instead of cottage cheese could you substitute ricotta cheese to add a bit of richness to the dish?
