    Not sure if I have posted this already, I make this about 2 or 3 times a year since it is crazy not all that good for you with all of the cream and cheeses... One of those times a year is my mom's birthday (she passed away a while back). I don't know what it is called, but she used to make it for us now and then and it was always one of my favorite "treats" of hers. I took pictures when I made it last. If I have posted this already, please ignore.

    Here are the layers of the casserole. In the pan on the left is ground beef, tomato sauce and tomato paste. Seasoned with garlic and pepper. The white mixture is a container of sour cream, a bar of cream cheese and a container of cottage cheese. In the dish is cooked egg noodles as the bottom layer.

    The next layer is half of the meat sauce.

    The third layer is all of the white mixture.

    After that you layer the last of the noodles, the rest of the meat sauce and cover liberally with grated or shredded parm, then bake on 350 for 30-40 minutes till it's hot all through.

    It comes out at about 13 gabillion calories per serving, but is pure comfort.

    In these times of hardship, just remember: Food that comfort us is good for our soul and inner peace. Especially if it holds childhood rememberings. It’s that smell in the kitchen that really make it feel like HOME, and that special aroma in your mouth that tastes of family, friendship and happiness. What are mere calories against this holistic experience of the light side!

    And no, as far as I know you hadn’t posted it yet.

    These are truly great recipes – you can’t find them in any cookbook or TV show because they are unique to a family of people. I once posted my favorite one of my late grandma ( https://thecantina.starwarsnewsnet....alk-recipes-and-more.10148/page-2#post-357623 ), maybe I can find something to put up here that my late ma used to make for us and that classifies as comforting food for me.

    Yep. I take no responsibility for those who take up the challenge. Just the messenger.
