"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?"
"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!! :)))))))"
