Beefy Sour Cream Noodle Bake

This was a great meal to switch up our dinner routine.  My family loved it, well except for the picky one, but we couldn’t even get him to try a bite.  I hope for the day that he will eat all of my meals just like his older brother.  Hey I can dream can’t I!? :)
You can’t go wrong with this casserole.  In fact, I think it is my favorite casserole to date!  Layers of cheesiness and a sour cream cottage cheese combo with chunks of ground beef.   It makes a great flavorful meal and everything combined is delicious!  This is going to be a hit with everyone for dinner.  Well unless you have a picky eater like I do!

    This is one of my favorite Pioneer Woman recipes! I sub the cottage cheese for cream cheese because my hubby HATES cottage cheese. Even our picky non-tomato eating son will eat a *little* of this. :-)

    I made this last week, I subbed the sour cream with Greek Yogurt and the noodles with whole wheat spaghetti! My boys loved it and are asking for it again. I am curious if this freezes well though, would love to have some on hand all the time!

    You could try a total of 2 cups sour cream mixed with the noodles, or ricotta cheese rather than the cottage cheese. My family doesn’t like the ricotta layer in lasagne so I’ve substituted sour cream for years. My son requests that for his birthday gift. My daughter only likes lasagne “the way Mom makes it”. No, they are not picky kids (anymore)

    Good Morning! This is almost the same recipe my precious mother-in-law gave me 25 years old! The only difference instead of cottage cheese her recipe called for cream cheese. A definite favor of my children when they were young and now that they are in college!
