Sour Cream Noodle Casserole

The name of this recipe doesn't sound so great... but it is really delicious!  This is an easy recipe to make.  You can make it ahead of time so on a week night you can just throw it in the oven and 20 minutes later it's ready!  It's very similar to lasagna, but takes less time to cook!  Here ya go:

Sour Cream Noodle Bake
1 1/4 lb Ground Beef
15 oz Tomato Sauce
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1 1/4 cup Cottage Cheese
1/2 cup Sliced Green Onions (optional)
1 cup Grated Cheddar Cheese

Preheat over to 350 degrees.

Brown the beef in a large skillet, drain fat.  Add tomato sauce, salt and pepper.  Let simmer while preparing the other ingredients.

Cook egg noodles until al dente, set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the sour cream and cottage cheese.  Add noodles and stir.

To assemble the casserole, add half the noodles to an 8x8 baking dish.  Top with half the meat mixture and half the cheese.  Repeat with the rest of the noodles, meat, and cheese.  Bake for 20 minutes and enjoy!

Enjoy with a side salad or some warm bread :)

This was very delicious and you can healthify it by using light sour cream and low fat cottage cheese.  You could also substitute the ground beef for ground turkey!  Enjoy!!!
