It is difficult to find ways to make mealtime interesting and fun. Serving the same dishes can be monotonous for both you and your family. This Sour Cream Noodle Bake recipe helps to break up the ‘same old lasagna’ blues and gives you an easy and tasty alternative to a classic favourite!

While this recipe really is a modification from the traditional lasagne, I may suggest some further alterations as well.

  • I love to add ground sausage or use half sausage and half been. You may find a spicy Italian sausage can zest things up a bit, or if you prefer leaving it mild that is fine too. I also love ground chicken as an alternative to beef.
  • Using the traditional tomato pasta sauce is delicious, but try it with your favourite cream or alfredo sauce with a spoonful of pesto added in for an extra rich and cheesy dish!
  • You can always substitute greek yogurt for sour cream which works just as well and is just as tasty!
  • Choose any pasta you have on hand. I have used fusilli or fettuccini for fabulous results!
  • When it is hot outside, I love to use my BBQ instead of my oven. This recipe works fabulous in the BBQ! I like to set it on the upper shelf to avoid burning the bottom.

Serving this Sour Cream Noodle Bake with a salad and slice of garlic bread or fresh roll completes this meal. I love my Easy Greek Salad or even my Broccoli Salad Recipe, both would go great with this meal!

  1. I messed up didn’t see the noodles had to be cooked first. Any ideas on what to do. Can I add water or just cook longer? Has anyone else done this? 

  2. Made this for dinner tonight and it was a HUGE hit! Kids and hubby screamed OMG it’s so good, it’s keeper! We all LOVED it! Thank you for sharing your amazing recipe!

  3. Anyway to get this recipe without downloading this site to my google chrome home pages?

  4. What was the correct amount of mozzarella cheese to use??

  5. Tried this for dinner tonight. My family loved it. I added mushrooms and green peppers as well. So good. Thanks for posting this recipe. 

  6. Has anyone tried freezing this?

  7. Family of four with two very picky eaters ate this. Even seconds. My husband said he’d reheat and eat again.  Thank you. Will make again. 

  8. Made this today after looking for something to keep us 2 in food for a few days. I had to get on here to tell you thank you very much. We are cheese a holics and this was perfect. I think i may have added oregano and Worcestershire said to ground meat. But other than that went step by step per your instructions and we are both laying here fat dumb and happy now!! Thank you thank you!!

  9. Do you cook the noodles before you add to the dish?

  10. Any recommendations on making this slightly healthier? I added this recipe to myfitnesspal and it says it is 1,130 calories per serving, and it is 6 servings?

  11. Could you possibly put in two 8×8 pans and freeze one?

  12. I am making this right now. I had almost a full 16 oz bag of cheese to put on top because the recipe only said to use a half cup earlier. Am I doing this correctly? It seems like a lot of cheese on top.

  13. Habitat Meal! YUMMMY!

  14. Holy cow! I just made this recipe tonight to the T and everyone loved it! Very easy and delicious!! Thank you!
