Today I am sharing Sour Cream Noodle Bake.  It’s going to become one of my family’s favorite recipes.  It not only tastes AMAZING, but is a great one to prep ahead of time as well! Everything about this dish screams classic comfort food!  Trust me, KIDS.  WILL. GOBBLE.  THIS.  UP.   



What to Serve with Sour Cream Noodle Bake

Serving this Sour Cream Noodle Bake with a salad and slice of garlic bread or fresh roll completes this meal.





1 1/4 lb. ground chuck
1 can 15-ounces diced tomatoes 
1 1/2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons ground black pepper

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1 onion, diced

8 oz. egg noodles

1 c. sour cream

1  container small curd cottage cheese
1 c. grated sharp or mild cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brown ground chuck and onion in a large skillet. Drain fat, then add tomatoes,  salt, garlic salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Stir, then simmer while you prepare the other ingredients. 
  3. Cook egg noodles until al dente. Drain and set aside. 
  4. In a medium bowl, combine sour cream and cottage cheese. Add plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Add to noodles and stir. 
  5. To assemble, add half of the noodles to a baking dish. Top with half the meat mixture, then sprinkle on half the grated cheddar. Repeat with noodles, meat, then a final layer of cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until all cheese is melted. 
  6. Serve with crusty French bread.





This Sour Cream Noodle Bake will be good for up to 3 – 4 days. Make sure you use an airtight container to keep it fresh for as long as possible – these super airtight glass containers are my favorite for all our leftovers.



You can freeze this sour cream noodle bake for up to 3 months. Make sure you cover it tightly and use a freezer- safe container.

I would defrost it overnight in the fridge before reheating in the microwave or oven.
