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.

I am chuckling as I read this post. After returning home from our honeymoon, I decided I wanted to try a new recipe, something I’d never made before for Jeff. Well, I leafed through my cookbooks and found a recipe very similar to yours, it was even called Sour Cream Noodle Bake, and decided to make it. The recipe didn’t seem like it would make enough, so I DOUBLED the recipe. Much to my chagrin, the noodles tripled or quadrupled themselves and we had way too much for two people. We don’t throw food away, so we ate and ate and ate on that Sour Cream Noodle Bake for almost two weeks. Needless to say, we were sick of it! I’ve never made it again, but Jeff and I still laugh at my first attempt at cooking as a married woman. Maybe it’s time to try your recipe. I promise I won’t double it!
