Serving: 12 | Prep: 20m | Ready in: 1h11m

Ingredients

  • 1 (12 oz.) package extra-wide egg noodles
  • 1 (12 oz.) container cottage cheese
  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 (28 oz.) jar pasta sauce
  • 2 (6 oz.) cans tomato paste
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Direction

  • Heat a big pot of slightly salted water to a rapid boil. Add in egg noodles to stir and reduce heat to bring water to a simmer. Leave the noodles uncovered in the pot for approximately 6 minutes while stirring periodically until the noodles obtain a tender appearance and firm texture. Strain the noodles.
  • Set the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and leave aside until preheated. Place cooked egg noodles into a lightly greased 9×13-inch baking tray.
  • Add sour cream, cottage cheese, and cream cheese into a bowl and mix evenly.
  • Set stove to medium heat and place large skillet. Add and stir ground beef inside the skillet for approximately 5 minutes, until almost brown. Add in tomato paste and pasta sauce to mix.
  • Scatter cottage cheese blend on top of the cooked egg noodles in the baking tray. Cover with cooked ground beef.
  • Place baking tray inside preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes. Scatter a layer of cheddar cheese and continue baking for an additional 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted and bubbles appear.
