It’s seriously so yummy and best of all, really easy! I love trying new recipes and I remember when I first made this several years ago, I did not have high expectations for it because I was not too familiar with egg noodles and the recipe did not seem like it would have much flavor. I found out real fast that I was wrong.
The beef simmers on the stove top in tomato sauce and some seasonings. While it’s simmering you cook up some egg noodles and then coat the hot egg noodles in a creamy & cheesy cottage cheese and sour cream sauce.
Layer it in your casserole dish and then top with some cheese, and then it cooks for just a short time in the oven.
