Sour Cream Casserole

I found this recipe at, but I was missing some of the ingredients. I wanted to try it anyway because I was looking for something different than normal. This was so good, that even Ms. Picky asked for seconds, and she even went for leftovers (and she NEVER eats leftovers!). I think we will be keeping this on the menu for a long time.

2 lbs 96% lean ground beef
1 box of noodles (I used Dreamfields Penne )
1 sm container of reduced fat sour cream
2 tbsp part skim ricotta
2 tsp cream cheese, whipped
1/2 c spaghetti sauce
1/4 c tomato paste
1/4 c milk
1 packet onion soup mix
8 oz. pkg of Italian 5 Cheese blend cheese
1 c corn flakes, crushed

1. Preheat oven to 350. Brown beef in a skillet until there is no more pink. Drain excess fat. Mix in sour cream, ricotta, spaghetti sauce, cream cheese, milk, onion soup mix until well blended. Cook over low heat 5-8 minutes until heated through.
2. Cook noodles according to packages directions, cooking to al dente rather than all the way done. Drain.
3. Mix noodles with the meat mixture. Pour into a shallow baking dish and cover with cheese. Add crushed corn flakes across the top and bake for 20-30 minutes.

I didn't add the seasonings because I think it varies. I used Mrs Dash, salt and pepper. Enjoy!

I'm totally going to make this some day this week! It sounds SO yummy!!! I'm glad you shared your variation of this. Here's hoping my picky eater likes it as much as yours did. :)

Well, if the picky child eats it and asks for leftovers, it's definitely a keeper and probably on our menu every other week! LOL

I know you are going to be super busy with your SITS day, but when I saw you have a cooking blog I had to come visit. You don't have your most popular posts highlighted, but I'd love to know what your most popular recipe has been and for you to link it in our Star Recipes Collection (just started this week)!

AGAIN, CONGRATULATIONS on your special day! :)
