This was really scrumptious! After reading the reviews I took the advice of changing the amounts and used whole 16 oz bag of noodles 12 oz sour cream and 8 oz cream cheese which I mixed in with the noodles first before layering then used 1 1/2 lbs of meat. I also used 26 oz of sauce which I think really made the difference in it not being too dry. I like lots of garlic too and only used 1/2 white onion that I cooked first! Fit perfectly in 9x13 pan and the cheese didn't overflow! Delish and my 5 yr old loved it! Read More

I am an onion lover but this was too much...however, I didn't realize it until I tried a bite. Plus, it didn't seem that the meat/sauce mixture could cover the amount of noodles the recipe called for (maybe double the meat/sauce or reduce the noodles?) nor did it layer as nicely as I would have hoped. Not bad...but I'm not sure if I will make again. Read More

The measurements for this recipe aren't even close to serving 11 people. There wasn't even enough of it to fit in a 9x13 pan. I put it in a square 8x8 pan. You'd need to use a 16 oz bag of egg noodles and double everything else except the onions. No way this fits into a 9x13 pan. I just stared at it in disbelief when I started assembling it. Also it would be easier to mix the noodles with the sour cream/cream cheese mixture before assembling it. I found several of the noodles once baked were dry with no sauce on them. The taste is ok it seems to be missing something though. May want to experiment with spices you know you like. I didn't add anything to it made the recipe just like it appears and I was pretty disappointed. I may make it again but will make some big changes. Read More

This was pretty good. Although, I did not follow the recipe exactly. Instead of 12 ounces of pasta, I only used half of a 16 ounce bag. That was plenty! I didn't have any onions, so I used onion powder. I used 2 cloves of garlic from a jar already minced. I left the cream cheese and sour cream sit for a while and then I creamed them together in a mixer. Then I mixed it together with the pasta. then I layer the pasta mixture and meat mixture in a 8x8 pan. And since I love cheese, I used way more then 1 cup of cheddar cheese. Read More

My husband and I both loved this recipe. I accidentally added the shredded cheese to the cream cheese mixture and also added more on top and it was great. The only thing that I would do differently would be to double the meet and tomato sauce. There is not nearly enough mixture to make layers in a pan that size. Read More

This is a family favorite we keep this in frequent rotation. I always double the recipe and bake in a larger casserole dish. Read More

This casserole is DELICIOUS! I did not have green onions so I used oregano parsley and basil. The kids were not crazy about the texture with the noodles so next time I will use couscous rice or maybe even roasted potatoes. Read More

We both loved this. I made it as directed with the following changes - used 1/2 cup sour cream left out the green onions added about 1/2 cup canned corn and reduced the noodles to about 8 oz. Seriously yummy stuff and it fit just perfect in my 9x13 pan. Read More
