This recipe was sponsored by Indiana’s Family of Farmers. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Have you ever done a freezer meal party? I have participated in a number and while it’s a lot of work it is so nice grabbing a healthy, homemade meal out of the freezer to cook on a busy night. I was really surprised on how affordable making this recipe was, considering it’s protein packed, each meal cost about $9 (serves 6 people) and that included the foil pan.

For this freezer meal party there were 8 people participating so we were to make 8 of one dish and then we all swapped. Here are some great tips if you want to do your own freezer meal day. I now have 8 different meals in my freezer (you can find the other recipes here) which will come in handy the next couple months as we prepare for Spring planting on the farm.

Spring is a busy time on the farm and once the ground turns warm and dry it will be a race to get the corn and soybean seeds in the ground. There’s a limited amount of time that is prime for planting so that means long days and short nights. My husband does the majority of the planting and if the boys and I want to see him it usually involves bringing lunch out to the field. When you work hard you get awfully hungry and these recipes will come in handy!

Sour Cream Noodle Bake is a great freezer friendly casserole recipe.

This recipe is adapted from a Pioneer Woman’s recipe, I switched up a couple things to suite our families tastes.

I like to layer the ingredients in this recipe because I think it looks prettier but it will taste just the same if you want to mix the noodles and sauce together before baking.

    1. I dont eat red meat so am going to try this with ground chicken. Will season it a bit more but I think there is enough of the other stuff in there to help it to not be dry.

  1. “1 teaspoon mined garlic”

    Mined garlic? I’m assuming this is minced. Anyway, the recipe looks and sounds delicious and I can’t wait to make it.

    This is delicious! I do have some questions. It is very watery when I spoon a serving on my plate. Do you think this is from the cottage cheese? Noodles were well drained. Any ideas how I correct this small problem?

    I like it when reviews are very specific. I usually like “bland” but this is a little to bland. I would suggest more green onions-maybe another 2. And maybe another 1/2 tsp minced garlic. I used the minced garlic in olive oil in a jar.

    Awaiting your answer about being frozen and the being “watery.” Thank you so much.

    1. I looked at the link to this. It looks like you freeze before baking. Also thaw the night before baking. Hope this helps.

    My new recipe is cooking in the oven! Smells so good. My question is can this be frozen ? If so, for how long.
    Thank you. I am so hungry!

    I am always looking for new recipes to try. So far, not many have worked for us. But I tried this one tonight and my husband commented how good it is. He said it is a keeper and I agree! Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for the idea. My hubby isn’t a fan of cottage cheese either. I was going to pass on the recipe but I’ll give it a shot with the creamed cheese!

    1. I love this recipe! I added cream cheese because I didn’t have cottage cheese and I used mozzarella cause I didnt have cheddar. It still turned out YUMMY! Next time I’ll try it your way.
