I'll definitely double the cream mixture next time and cook the noodles only to al dente.
We liked this very much. I used whole wheat rotini and fat-free cream cheese and sour cream, and only a handful of cheddar on top. I didn't read the directions (oops!), so I sauted the onion and bell pepper with the ground beef instead of mixing them with the sour cream & cream cheese, but it came out just fine anyway. I thought the end result tasted a lot like lasagna, but much healthier! Next time I might try adding some spinach leaves. Thanks for posting!
Really good, I added a little onion and green bell pepper when i was browning the meet and left out the green onion and bell pepper in the cream mixture. It was really good the next day too!
I am amazed, truly amazed. Not only did I love this but my casserole haters loved it as well. Next time I make it (and I will make it again) I plan on doubling the sour cream/cream cheese mixture. I didn't have any green peppers so used diced green chilis and it was still wonderful. Thank you for posting this! Can't wait to try the little bit that is leftover for breakfast. Yum!
This was really good! I had my doubts about it as I was making it. I thought Cream cheese and tomato sauce? But the flavor of the cheese mixture and tomato sauce worked very well. I used 2 cloves of garlic and the tops of the onion as well. As this was baking the sauce colored the noodle layer which was fun to see as you dished this out. I will be making this again. Made for *PAC Fall 2007* game
The family enjoyed this - lots of flavour but more creamy than we are used to. I'll certainly make this again but will reduce the amount of cream cheese and sour cream.
Great Southern recipe. As with most casseroles, better the second day. Green peppers give me heartburn so I omitted them. Still excellent!
This is something that our family used to eat all the time, we always made it and then baked it the next day we always thought it had better flavor that way.
