Creamy Beef Noodle Bake is a family favorite dinner recipe. Egg noodles, cottage cheese, cheese, and perfectly seasoned ground beef bake up in one casserole dish. Everyone loves this casserole!
Do you have a go-to dinner? A dinner that you can make and you know everyone will love it and it will turn out delicious each time. Well, this creamy beef noodle bake is mine! Everyone loves it and I can always count on it to be one of those dinners that are peaceful.
Meaning my kids don’t whine and cry about having to eat their food. So you can bet that this creamy beef noodle bake gets made several times a month at my house.
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.
This recipe is very versatile too. I have had several readers use some fresh onions, fresh garlic, chopped pepper and cook that with the beef mixture. Other readers have used a can of corn (drained) and mixed that in with the meat.
Add in whatever seasonings you prefer; Italian seasoning, basil, oregano, garlic powder, etc. The sky is the limit with this recipe. I have loved reading all your changes and substitutions, so if you have one please leave me a comment below. I love to hear from all of you.
My family loves the recipe as is but the beauty of this recipe is that it is so adaptable and versatile. I serve this with a bagged green salad that I add cherry tomatoes and chopped cucumber to. My kids LOVE green salad (weird, huh?!) so I always try and have it at the dinner table. You could also serve it with these slow cooker carrots or these 15 minute skillet carrots.
