Back in my meat eating days there was a casserole my cousin used to make that we loved. It has a very unique, sweet flavor. Okay, to be honest, it is just comfort food at its best. This recipe is less about a “healthy meal” and more about “YUMM!” I pulled this recipe out after thinking about it for a while now and adjusted it to be vegetarian.
1 pacakge of 12 oz whole wheat extra large egg noodles
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
1 can tomato sauce
2 TB sugar
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 cup light sour cream
1 8oz package cream cheese
6 green onions
In a large saucepan, heat water and cook egg noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat diced tomatoes, salt, sugar and tomato sauce.
When noodles are done, drain and add sour cream, cream cheese and sliced green onions. Mix well. Add tomato mixture and mix well again. Pour into baking dish, any glass dish will work. Bake at 325 for 30-40 minutes until heated through. Top with cheddar cheese and serve. Serves about 4.
(The meat version: 8oz small egg noodles instead of 12oz large. Brown ground beef then add tomato sauce, diced tomatos, salt and sugar and simmer.)
