Sour Cream Noodle Bake

I am posting this recipe again, because like all family favorites it has changed a bit over time.

I have increased the amount of tomato sauce and added a red onion to the meat mixture for a little texture and flavor.

Still one of the kid's all time favorites!

Sour Cream Noodle Bake

1 pound pasta (I like elbow macaroni or cavatappi)
1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
15 oz can of tomato sauce
1 large red onion, chopped
16 oz sour cream (1 medium size container)
16 oz cottage cheese (1 medium size container)
16 oz cheddar cheese, grated (2 cups)

Cook pasta according to package directions in boiling salted water. Drain and set aside.

Brown the ground beef and drain any excess fat. Add the garlic salt, salt, pepper, chopped onion and tomato sauce. Simmer for five to ten minutes, until onion is softened.

Meanwhile, in a separate bowl combine the cottage cheese, sour cream and noodles.

Alternate layers of noodle mixture and meat mixture in a large casserole dish, beginning with noodles and ending with meat. Top with cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and browned.
