Friday nights at our house are always crazy. Friday nights when my step kids are over are even crazier. There are two more mouths to feed and even after all these years, I’m never sure if they will eat what I fix. Wait….I should clarify…..they will always eat it but I can tell if they don’t really like it. I’m always on the lookout for easy, quick, family friendly dishes that they will like. Thumbs up were shown all around for this recipe. Definitely in our new rotation.
The sour cream in this noodle bake adds something a bit extra to this easy pasta casserole.
