Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pounds ground chuck
  • One 15-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces egg noodles
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/4 cups small curd cottage cheese
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions (less to taste)
  • 1 cup grated sharp Cheddar
  • Crusty French bread, for serving

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 4

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

Step 5

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

Step 6

Serve with crusty French bread.

Step 7

To freeze: Assemble the Sour Cream Noodle Bake in a disposable aluminum oven-proof pan and seal the top of the container with the lid or heavy foil. Seal the edges to prevent freezer burn and place in the freezer.

Step 8

To cook from frozen: Place directly in a 375-degree F oven and bake, covered, for 45 minutes. Remove the lid and bake until lightly brown and bubbly, about 20 minutes more.
