Sour Cream & Noodles with Beef. Easy and Delicious!
This makes 6 big portions so being in the "stock up my freezer" mode I baked 2 portions for supper last night and froze 2 for later. They will be handy and delicious some time down the road.
Ingredients for Sour Cream & Noodles with Beef:
1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
15 ounce can of tomato sauce
1/2 t. salt
freshly ground black pepper
8 ounces egg noodles
3/4 C. sour cream
1 1/2 C. small curd cottage cheese
1/8 t. red pepper flakes (or to taste)
1 C. sliced green onions (or to taste)
2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and spray baking dish with cooking spray. If you plan to bake the whole recipe use a 9" x 13' dish.
Start a large pan with salted water, bringing it to a boil to cook the noodles in, according to package directions.
Brown the beef in a skillet draining the fat if needed. Add the salt and pepper well. Add the tomato sauce cover and reduce to a low simmer while you finish cooking the noodles and slice the onions. Drain the noodles and set them aside when they finish cooking.
Using a medium sized bowl mix the cottage cheese, sour cream. Add the red pepper flakes, a pinch of salt, and a good portion of black pepper. Add the drained noodles and green onion mixing well.
Yield 6 servings. Serve with a green salad or slaw.
