This is an OMG recipe. My husband had two helpings and he doesn't like sour cream! I made half as there are only two of us. To cut calories I used low fat cottage cheese and light sour cream. I used just the egg noodles and sauteed 6 oz of fresh spinach with the onions instead. I left out the tarragon as a personal preference and had no green peppers to add. This was so delightful I can't wait to try it again. If my calculations are right this is 4 points for 1/4 of the 8x8 pan for Weight Watchers. Thanks, Mirj for a lovely side dish or main entree.

Apart from using red pepper instead of the green pepper (personal taste preference), adding 2 cups of mushrooms and 6 cloves of minced garlic, omitting the hot pepper sauce (I don't like hot sauces so I added some oyster sauce), I made this exactly to the recipe. I used low-fat sour cream and low-fat cottage cheese and all the herbs were dried herbs. A yummy blend of flavours and very creamy. Everyone loved this. The only change I'll make next time will be to double the recipe so that I can put some extra meals in my parents' freezer. Thank you, Mirj, for sharing this scrumptious recipe.
