My husband and his family are obsessed with the old store-bought box called "Noodles Romanoff" and when they stopped selling it he went on a crusade to copy it. I think it's better than that box version and he thinks he's figured it out. So here it is. I prefer it without the sugar and the garlic salt. If you add chopped bits of ham to this, it makes a good meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook noodles as directed and drain.
  2. While the noodles cook, make a rue by melting the butter in a pot first and then adding the flour to make a sort of yellow mixture.
  3. Add milk, sugar, garlic salt and salt and let boil.
  4. Right after it boils, remove from heat and add sour cream and cheese. Mix to melt.
  5. Add noodles to the pot and mix sauce together with noodles.

This is it! The recipe I have been waiting for. I loved Betty Crockers Noodles Romanoff and have been despondent for years since it's demise. I couldn't figure out how to duplicate it. Now I see that it needed a little sugar to get that good old fashioned, processed taste.

At least I have a place to start as we loved the boxed recipe too. I may try Romano cheese next time as suggested by another review. Also, as much as I love salt, it was way to salty. I may try garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Other than being too salty it was pretty good. I think I will try it again with only the two changes above.

This is more Noodles Cheddaroff. Noodles Romano should have Romano cheese. Nothing like Noodles Romanoff.
