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
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
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!!!
