THROW BACK THURSDAY - on Saturday

After a busy week I am posting throw back Thursday, on Saturday.
This recipe is one of Doug's favourites. I have been making it since I was newly married in the early 80's. The recipe comes from "The Junior League of Salt Lake City's Heritage Cookbook". My SIL, Wendy, gave this to me for my birthday in December, 1979. It is called "Company Casserole" and I have adapted it for crock-pot cooking.

Company Casserole
adapted from Jr. League Heritage Cookbook (Myra Cameron Kennedy)

8 oz. egg noodles- cooked al dente- I used no yolk
1/2 lb.- 1 lb. ground beef- cooked and drained
24 oz. tomato sauce
1 cup cottage cheese-I use low-fat
8 oz. cream cheese-I use light
1/4 cup sour cream- I use low-fat
about 4-6 chopped green onion
1 table. butter or margarine

After draining the cooked egg noodles, stir in the butter and set aside. Mix softened cream cheese, cottage cheese sour cream and green onion if everyone likes them. (I serve mine on the side.) Spray crock pot and turn on high. Layer 1/2 of the noodles in the crock pot. Cover with all of the cream cheese mixture. Spread the rest of the noodles over the cheese mix. Top with cooked ground beef, and pour tomato sauce over all. Cover and turn heat to low. Cook on low for 3-4 hours. Check at 2 1/2. I use an oval 5-7 quart crock pot for this. It looks a mess, but is creamy and has a nice flavour.

I am adding recipe cards and a weekly menu planning calender to the give away basket. I love recipes. I love collecting, trying, and getting rid of the paper clutter of those that don't pass.
