Creamy Cheesy Beef Noodle Bake

I've seen a lot of recipes on Pinterest lately for a sour Cream Noodle Bake and I just couldn't decide on one. So...I compiled all of them and put together this recipe based on amounts of ingredients that I liked. I used 1-1/4lb of ground chuck but next time I think I will do half ground chuck and half ground sausage for a little extra "kick" in flavor. Regardless, this was really tasty and the leftovers today were even better! Hope you enjoy! To print this recipe, click Creamy Cheesy Beef Noodle Bake
Ingredients:
1-1/4 lb Ground Chuck
15 oz Tomato Sauce (I used Hunt's Garlic & Herb)
1/2 tsp Salt
Ground Black Pepper
2 cloves Garlic, minced
8 ounces of uncooked Egg Noodles (I used No Yolks Extra Broad Noodles)
1/2 cup Sour Cream
16 oz Small Curd Cottage Cheese
1/4-1/2 cup Green Onions, Sliced
2 cups Grated Medium Cheddar Cheese
Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 350°F.


2) In a large skillet, brown the ground chuck, drain fat then add the tomato sauce, salt, minced garlic and ground black pepper. Stir together and simmer.


3) In a large pot, boil water with a generous amount of salt. Add the egg noodles, cook for about 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain and set aside.


4) In a medium bowl, mix together the sour cream and the cottage cheese. Season with ground black pepper.



5) Add the noodles and stir well, then add the green onions.





6) Spray a 9x13 inch glass baking dish with non-stick cooking
spray. Layer half of the noodle mixture on the bottom. (Sorry! Forgot to take a photo of this step, but I'm sure you get the idea!)




7) Then layer half of the meat mixture on top of the noodle mixture.


8) Spread 1 cup of the grated cheddar cheese over the meat mixture.


9) Repeat layer process and bake in oven at 350°F for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and the casserole is bubbly.




10) Let sit for 7-10 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy!!!
