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?
I made this last night for dinner. This is a very basic pasta meal and I have never had anything like it before. I think next time I would use a bit more sour cream because it seemed a little dry. Other than that, very tasty. Thanks Erika! My 1st recipe for PAC.
We really liked this! I used ground turkey instead of beef - just a personal preference - but otherwise followed the recipe. I had it in the oven a little longer than I would have liked, so it got a little dry, but I'll sure be making it again. Thanks!
Oh yum! I also made this from a recipe card in the mid 70's! I sub some of the sour cream for yogurt so it is not so rich. Thanks for bringing back great memories with this recipe I had lost!
For me, this was just missing something. Perhaps the comfort food/memories factor? The dish needed something to "brighten" it up.
Thanks!!!I have been looking for this recipe for years! I first made this back in the 70's from a grocery store recipe card and lost it through the years.So glad I can make it again!I think I used to use 2-3 garlic cloves.
This recipe is sooooo good. My mom used to make this all the time and I loved it. I have it written down somewhere but I can never find it. Thanks for posting it!! :)))))))
