My mom made this dish a lot for us as I was growing up - it's a wonderful comfort food to me... and now I enjoy making it myself. I like it paired with candied carrots and garlic bread.

This is really a different pasta dish and such a nice change from the usual. I started out making this as written, but as others have stated it is quite dry. So I did increase the sour cream to 2 Cups and the butter to 3 Tbsp then thinned a bit more with 1-2 Tbsp milk. I also found that the noodles were getting too crisp half way through baking, so I covered the dish for the remaining time. Really good flavour, and I will definitely make this again. Thx for sharing this recipe Erika!

My mom also made this casserole alot when I was little. I usually do 2 cups of sour cream and 4 tbsp. butter or it is too dry for me. I also add 2-3 garlic cloves instead of just one. Thank you for posting this!

I appreciated the comfort factor of it. However, it was dry and needed something else in the sauce. Worcesterhire? Double the sauce?
