Sour Cream Pasta Bake
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 teaspoons garlic and onion seasoning
2 teaspoons house seasoning
1 jar marinara sauce
3/4 cup parmesan cheese, divided use
12 ounces extra wide egg noodles, cooked and drained (or your favorite pasta)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
12 ounces sour cream
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or mozzarella)
Fresh dill or parsley
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add beef to a large skillet. Brown beef over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes. Drain any excess grease. Add the seasonings, marinara and 1/4 cup parmesan.
Add cream cheese, sour cream, Italian seasoning, dill, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese to a mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly to combine and set aside. (You’ll need a few cups of a creamy mixture, this can also include cottage cheese or ricotta. Use whatever you have on hand.)
To assemble, spray a 9-by-13 casserole dish with a non-stick cooking spray. Add the meat mixture to the bottom of the dish. Next, dollop on the creamy mixture over the meat and spread evenly. Then add the egg noodles and top with the cheddar cheese and remaining parmesan. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the cheese is thoroughly melted.
Top with some fresh dill or parsley and serve warm.
