Recipe: Company Casserole

This delicious pasta casserole is made with common ingredients. Give it a try!

12 oz. egg noodles
1 lb. ground beef
2 cans (8 oz. each) tomato sauce
1 pkg. cream cheese (8 oz.), softened
1 cup cottage cheese
¼ cup sour cream
½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (more or less as desired)
½ cup parmesan cheese, shredded (more or less as desired)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder or minced onion, oregano (all to taste)


Brown the ground beef. While browning, season well with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder/minced onion (more or less to taste but use at least some of each). Drain and set aside.

Cook egg noodles in well-salted water according to package directions. Drain, return to pot and add butter to noodles. Stir while butter melts. Set noodles aside.

In a very large bowl combine cream cheese, cottage cheese and sour cream. Mix well. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and/or minced onion, and oregano to taste. Add noodles to seasoned cream cheese mixture and stir thoroughly. Add mozzarella and parmesan cheeses and stir thoroughly. Add cooked beef and stir thoroughly. Finally, add both cans of tomato sauce and stir thoroughly.

Spoon (dump!) mixture into a large baking dish (13 x 9 or larger). Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes.

    I cannot believe that after cooking Chicken Parmesan at midnight, I wake up and this, my second blog read of the day, has made me hungry! It looks and sounds like my childhood on Bald Eagle Street in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania. Yum!

  2. I know what you mean, one of the perils of looking at recipes is a seemingly all-day hunger that just won’t quit! By the way I was born and raised in Wilkes-Barre, nearly neighbors!

    Comfort food at it’s finest! Nice to meet another Pennsylvanian!

  4. Whereabouts are you, Stephanie?

  5. Stephanie says:

    A little town called Ellwood City – about 40 minutes north of Pittsburgh

  6. I’ve heard of it (which is odd, actually. Being from the upper right we didn’t often make it to the lower left!!!) 😉

    That is odd! It really is a small world!
