SOUR CREAM NOODLE BAKE - Pioneer Woman Cooks
A few months ago I bookmarked this recipe from Pioneer Woman Cooks. It would be just right for an upcoming weeklong family vacation at the beach. At the time it seemed the trip was forever and a day away, but we just returned from that never-going-to-get-here trip having had the loveliest of times.
I doubled the batch of the original recipe so that we would have leftovers. But, really, one batch was plenty--it made around 10 servings.
I modified a separate batch for my sister, Tammy, who has to stay away from tomato sauce. Instead of the tomato/beef sauce, I added precooked chicken, baked it along side the other dish and she loved it.
Both versions were delicious, however next time I would add crushed red pepper flakes to the tomato/beef to give it a bit more zip.
