Noodles a la Russe
This recipe comes courtesy of Michelle's mom. We were looking for something to make using ground beef that we had never made before. So, Michelle called her mom and asked for some ideas. She offered up this recipe that she loves, but Michelle's dad isn't fond of (he doesn't like sour cream). We are extremely glad she shared!
Here's what you need:
1 lb. ground beef
1 1/2 cup sour cream
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp Kosher salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 Tbsp butter
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp chopped pimento
6 oz. extra broad egg noodles (or whatever you have on hand)
Here's what you do:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Also start your water boiling for the pasta. Once your water is ready, salt the pasta water and drop in the egg noodles.
Mince your garlic.
Slice up your scallions.
Brown the ground beef with the onion and the garlic.
Once the meat is browned completely, drain as much of the fat off as you can. Season with salt and pepper.
Mix together the sour cream, grated Parmesan, butter and pimento together.
Mix all of that together with the beef.
Stir in the noodles and pour everything into a 2 quart casserole dish.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until it is lightly brown on top.
