Beef Stroganoff Casserole

            What is the ultimate comfort food? Yes, Beef Stroganoff! Stroganoff is a rich, creamy and delicious meal that is quick and easy, but tastes like it takes forever to make. Loaded with tender beef, onions and mushrooms, it is the warm and comforting food we crave when the cooler temps start interrupting our warm days.

            Back in 1891, this dish was actually created for a cooking contest. The french chef named it after his employer. The dish was the big winner of the contest, and the rest is history!

Lean strips of beef that are sauteed and then served in a rich sour cream sauce, along with mushrooms and onions.

            We are going to shake this up a bit by baking the pasta right in the sour cream sauce. This allows the noodles to soak in all that wonderful flavor making this dish irresistible.
