Noodle Bake, hot dish, casserole, it does not matter what you grew up calling them we all know those familiar, cheesy, creamy, starchy, meaty dinners from weeknight suppers, Church socials, and Scout buffet tables. They were part of my mother’s regular meal rotation when I was growing up. These humble dinners have survived the test of time because they are made with the most basic of ingredients, most, if not all, of which you already have in your cupboard, and because those ingredients can easily be switched out for something else.

This old-fashioned, Sour Cream Noodle Bake is so easy to make, a beginner cook can prepare it. My recipe calls for 8 ounces of dry pasta and you can use any type of pasta you like: bowties, wagon wheels, ziti, those flat, ribbon-like egg noodles, even small, macaroni elbows will go well with the sauce. This casserole also reheats very well, so it will taste great when you take it to work the next day.

    Not liking cottage cheese in casseroles, I prefer to use ricotta & cream cheese in the wonderful recipe. Thank you Stephanie!!!

    OMG the very best comfort food I have had in ages. My husband being a picky eater loved this one too. I’ll make this one again, regularly.

    This is very similar to Company Beef Cassarole. We use ricotta instead of cottage cheese, the noodles get buttered, and green onion is added to the ricotta, sour cream mixture before adding on top of noodles. Instead of cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan cheeses are used to top in off. Luscious dinner!

    Yummy and easy. Everyone liked it. I added little extra ground beef and would recommend only using very lean ground beef because of browning in butter.

  5. Sam

    Looks good & I’ll try it, but you really should change the servings to 4. That is 2 ounces of beef & 1 ounce of dry noodles per serving for 8 people. Ain’t gonna happen! lol

    Made this when we were moving our daughter and son in law into their new house. I put this together the night before and popped it in the oven when we decided to eat that day. They all loved it, this is a keeper Recipe!
