Tangy Beef and Noodle Casserole Recipe

You can’t go wrong with a good beef and noodle casserole. I have been experimenting a bit lately to come up with ways to make a creamy casserole, that does not include a ‘cream of’ soup in the ingredient list. Instead of a condensed soup, this recipe gets it’s moisture from a blend of sour cream and cottage cheese which also happens to be the ‘tangy’ part of this casserole.

That bit of tang from the sour cream and cottage cheese, blends wonderfully with the tomato based beef topping. I’m quite happy with how this casserole turned out, and judging by all the clean plates, my family was pretty happy with it too.

  • This looks really good. I really like a beef or hamburger casserole that has a good flavor and noodles. I’m not a fan of cottage cheese in anything, except by itself, but with the cheddar, it might not be too bad. Thanks for the recipe and I’m looking forward to more of them.

  • This sure does look like a crowd pleaser. It would be easy to make vegetarian with Boca or Morningstar crumbles. Thank you for sharing.

  • This sounds so good and looks absolutely yummy. I love casseroled that are easy to make. It could be made a little different too. Use spaghetti sauce instead of tomato sauce it would be like a lasagna casserole.

    Add a pack of taco seasoning to the ground chuck. Taco casserole.
