Divine Casserole aka Sour Cream Noodle Bake

Divine Casserole Finished
One of my favorite websites is Deep South Dish.  It is written by Mary Foreman and she whips up some awesome dishes.  She recently posted a recipe for this Divine Casserole.  She says “Divine Casserole, sometimes called simply Sour Cream Noodle Bake, is sort of a cross between baked spaghetti and lasagna in its flavor.  Made with egg noodles tossed with a mixture of cream cheese, sour cream and cottage cheese, layered with a tomato-based meat sauce and shredded cheese, it might just become a family favorite!”

I was intrigued by the combination of ingredients and readily put it on my “make this soon” list.  I have a pantry full of homemade marinara sauce from last year’s summer bounty and I love using it up in new and interesting ways.  Mary says  this is an “old” recipe often found under a variety of  names such as Sour Cream Noodle Bake, Sour Cream Baked Spaghetti, Husband’s Delight, Italian Delight even Godfather Casserole.

 My sous-chef dish-washing mom and the Chief  both gave this a “thumbs up”.  We actually loved it.  It made a large pan full and I put half in the freezer and will be serving it up again shortly.

Cream of Fresh Tomato Soup II

soup and salad
It’s soup season!  My first new soup of the fall came from a recipe by Ina Garten of the Food Network.  This summer when our Roma tomatoes were coming in by the dozens I didn’t have time to do anything with them.  My sous-chef dish-washing mom was fighting breast cancer, we had a fair amount of company in and out and in August my sweet little grandsons were visiting for 10 days.

So, as my Chief Gardener would bring in baskets of tomatoes with a slight look of apology, I would smile, say “no problem honey”.  Then I washed them up and whisked them away to the freezer.

However, on this particularly day the Chief had just brought in the last of the fall tomatoes.  He was pulling the plants and cleaning up the garden. Our fall was pretty hot but I really, really wanted to make fresh tomato soup with this last basket of tomatoes.  That evening a cool rain blew through and I thought “Ah-ha!  soup tomorrow.” The coolness didn’t last but we had soup anyone.

It wasn’t until I started writing this blog post that I discovered that I used this same recipe from Ina Garten last fall!  I should have searched MY OWN website for a recipe before I went searching hers.  :)

Last year’s soup looked like this. You can get the recipe here.  We loved this soup as much this fall as we did last fall!

I still have bags of frozen Roma tomatoes in the freezer and will enjoy making this again when the weather gets really, really cold!

Have a blessed weekend and possibly a soup Saturday!

Happy Cooking!

Think upon these things:

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV
