Top Review by HEP MEP

I prepared this tonight, and I thought it was down-right tasty! My daughter loved it too, Husband wasn't wild about it, but - 2 against 1 - we win! I thought it was plenty flavorful, but did add a little salt to the sour cream mixture - also pepper, because pepper is tops in my book. I'm a pro at buttered noodles. I thought the whole thing was delicious, easy, and it didn't have any cream soup in it! Thank you for sharing it.
