Beef and Noodle Casserole Recipe

 Beef and Noodle Casserole Recipe SixSistersStuff

A couple of days ago. someone asked me what food blogs I used to look at before I started blogging. We started our blog in 2011 and back then, there weren’t as many food blogs (and many of them were not as well known as they are today). Pinterest was just starting out and no one knew how to use it . . . so I really found most of my recipes on TV (I loved Rachel Ray) and through Google. Google led me many times to The Pioneer Woman, which has always been one of my favorite sites. Ree’s writing is hilarious and her recipes are to die for!

I had the chance to meet Ree last summer down in Texas and she is seriously as kind in person as she seems on TV or in her blog posts.
This recipe is one that I found on her blog years ago and my family loves it. It’s the perfect meal for those busy weeknights when you have piano lessons, soccer practice, tumbling, and dance all on the same night. 😉

    • Hi Vicki. The recipe calls for 1 cup which is quite a bit. I looked up some substitute options for you and this is what I found. Hope this helps! Pureed cream cheese or thick Greek yogurt are popular substitutes used in many recipes calling for cottage cheese, as they don't sacrifice flavor or texture in most dishes. Ricotta cheese is often used instead of cottage cheese, and is a great filling for ravioli, cannoli and other Italian desserts.

    I make this but I add a package of taco mix to the hamburger and that gives it more flavor. Follow the directions on the taco mix package. Haven't tried it with egg noodles, I use whatever pasta I have on hand.
  2. I made this tonight. Basically a deconstructed lasagna of sorts. I added a good deal of garlic powder to cheese/sour cream mixture. I think next time I'll cut the sour cream by half, see if that helps thicken things up. Otherwise, this is a bit soupy.
  3. I made this last night, and it was very good. I read some of the previous comments beforehand, so I used a couple of the recommendations / suggestions. I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese, and I added a taco seasoning packet to the beef. I also added a whole onion in place of the green onion. That's just a personal preference. Highly recommend.
    • Hi Judith. Here is some information I found for you and converting a oven recipe over to the slow cooker. It was very helpful. With the beef and noodle casserole, I don't think you will have to alter the recipe that much because everything is basically cooked before sticking it in the oven or slow cooker. It just needs to get heated through. You may also need to cook longer because the high setting on a slow cooker is around 300 degrees and this beef and noodle casserole needs to cook at 350 degrees in the oven. Here is the link to the conversion information. I hope this helps.
