Growing up, my family ate a lot of meat and potatoes.  Almost every meal consisted of meat from animals raised on our farm – chicken, pork or beef, some form of potatoes, and other fresh vegetables from our garden.  My parents never strayed very far from that menu.   

Meals at my best friend’s house, however, were a different story.  Terri’s Mom was always making cool things like wraps, stir-fry or pasta dishes. Whenever I joined them for dinner, it was a welcome change from the usual meat and potatoes meal served at my own house.

As I was going through some of my grandmother’s recipes the other day, one in particular stood out to me.  It was handwritten by Terri’s Mom – I’d know that handwriting anywhere.  I recall enjoying this dish at her house a few times.  Her Company Casserole Recipe was quite delicious.  It’s really so simple to make, and it’s a nice change up from boring old pasta & jar sauce.

  1. This sounds delicious. I am always looking for new recipes to serve when we have company. Looks like one both adults and kids will enjoy.

  2. This sounds really good! I love that you didn’t use traditional casserole cheeses – like mozzarella and ricotta – in this recipe. Makes it totally unique.

  3. This looks simple and delicious!

  4. Any recipe with cream cheese AND sour cream has to be good!

  5. This looks so good! I think I’m going to make it without the meat. I bet it will still be a hit!

  6. […] may recall the recipe I recently shared for Company Casserole, and a recipe I shared a while ago for Macaroni & Shrimp Salad that both feature sour cream as […]
