When I think of comfort food, casseroles come to mind. This looks like a quick and easy recipe that the entire family will enjoy. Dishes featuring ground beef and pasta are always a hit in my household. For a healthier version of this recipe, I would use lean ground beef, unsalted tomato sauce, low sodium Worcestershire sauce, lite cream cheese, low fat cottage cheese, and lite sour cream. I would also use only 2 tablespoons of butter. To ensure that the egg noodles have a good consistency in the casserole, they should be drained before they are done. The pasta will continue to cook in the oven.

"sew4me" got me curious so I googled it. One shouldn't have to do that on a recipe site, but things like that, incorrect directions, omitted ingredients, etc., etc. are all too common on this site. It's a shame, too. There are many very good sounding recipes on this site!. Anyway, it seems like Knorr/Lipton has small packages of something called Pasta Sides. Butter Noodles is one of those. It looked like Kroger might also have something similar. As far as casserole size is concerned, I think I'd start with a 3 qt. size depending on the bulk of the noodles and 1 1/2 lbs. meat. If it turns out to be too large, drop back a size if needed. Seems to me that would be better than using too small a dish and having it "run over". :-) Just my $0 .02 worth.

Sounds interesting. But what are "butter noodles"? I've heard of egg noodles and plain noodles, but the only time (besides now) I've heard of butter noodles. it meant noodles with melted butter.

THEY'VE DONE IT AGAIN! Someone needs to discover that "large" is not a size! They need to SPECIFY what SIZE casserole is required. Again, "large" is not a size! Please.
