Easy Baked Spaghetti Casserole

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!

How to Make Spaghetti Casserole with Egg Noodles

This casserole is very easy to make. Start with boiling some egg noodles. While the noodles are cooking, make the sauce and cheese filling. To make the sauce, cook ground beef with garlic, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, salt, pepper, sugar, and tomato sauce in a skillet. Prepare the filling by mixing together cream cheese, sour cream, and cottage cheese. To assemble the casserole, combine cooked noodles and cheese mixture. Spread the mixture into a baking dish. Top with the meat sauce and cheese and bake.

Can Italian Noodle Casserole be Frozen

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.
