Description

A lovely weeknight standby. Flavorful, cheesy, and satisfying!

Ingredients

  • 1-¼ pound Ground Chuck
  • 1 can 15-ounces Tomato Sauce
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 8 ounces, weight Egg Noodles
  • ½ cups Sour Cream
  • 1-¼ cup Small Curd Cottage Cheese
  • ½ cups Sliced Green Onions (less To Taste)
  • 1 cup Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Brown ground chuck in a large skillet. Drain fat, then add tomato sauce. 1/2 teaspoon salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Stir, then simmer while you prepare the other ingredients.

Cook egg noodles until al dente. Drain and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine sour cream and cottage cheese. Add plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Add to noodles and stir. Add green onions and stir.

To assemble, add half of the noodles to a baking dish. Top with half the meat mixture, then sprinkle on half the grated cheddar. Repeat with noodles, meat, then a final layer of cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until all cheese is melted.

Serve with crusty French bread.

Made this last night and the family loved it. Forgot the scallions but it was probably more kid-friendly without them. Everything else was just as the recipe called for. Tasty and inexpensive. Will make again.

I combined mozzarella and sharp cheese. Added Italian herbs. I now call it the Poor Man’s Lasagna!

HELP! I do not have cottage cheese in the house but have the rest. Can I shred some mozzarella and mix with sour cream or cream cheese and sour cream. Also no green opinion but could use some french onion mix or just leave it out and use regular onion. What do you think.

Very tasty and so easy. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 mitts is because it just isn’t super healthy with all the egg noodles and cheese and beef. But it was a great family meal.

Perfect as is, but simple to change up if you want. We love this dish and it has become part of our regular rotation.

Wonderful!! Reminds me of my grandmother’s recipe. I tweaked it a little- cream cheese instead of cottage cheese, added garlic powder and black olives. I thought it needed a little more flavor though- I will add more salt, pepper, and garlic powder next time. Will make again though!

This has been on my “to-make” list for months now, and I finally got to it this afternoon. I made a few modifications (who doesn’t tweak things a bit?) and it turned out to be quite delicious! I followed the recipe as posted for the most part, but reduced the amount of cottage cheese and added some flavored cream cheese instead. Oh, and I also used a mix of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. I can’t wait to eat the leftovers! This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing it!
