    very easy to make and good!
    This recipe is a nice change up from rice and macaroni and cheese when you want something tasty and a little different. It's versatile too....add cooked shrimp, ground beef, or diced chicken and any other chopped veggies or herbs and you can stretch it to a main dish. Use a little creativity folks, and this will be as tasty as you make it. So good and great for the budget. You go, Paula....we love your cooking!
    I don't get why this didn't work. The noodles were really dry. not too much flavor I checked he ingredients over and over. Oh well! I love Paula!
    I am generally annoyed when people use review space to give alterations but this one is so good I have to share: make this dish with a few subs and it turns it into a high protien/low fat veggie dish. Sub spaghetti squash for the noodle and fat free greek yogurt for the sour cream- then make sure your cottage cheese and parmesan are low fat. It is really awesome and actually healthy. I love you Paula!!
    Love it. We make it all the time.
    Wow! Such simple ingredients, but the flavor is a wonderful surprise! YES! I would make this again (and again, and again.
    I am afraid to say that this was truly disgusting. It actually smelled quite nice - I love Worcestershire sauce - but the taste was bland at best.
    This recipe has been around for years. It was in my old Betty Crocker cookbook. It is good and simple to make.
    I am a little surprised at this recipe. I have been making this very same recipe for 30 years. The recipe is in Betty Crocker's cookbook. The edition is 1963. It is called Noodles Romanoff. You would think Paula would give credit where credit is due. A note for the recipe, I add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper to zip it up.
    I've made cheesy noodles twice and enjoyed it each time...I found that added a bit more garlic salt will keep this recipe from being bland.Possibly 1/2 to 1 teaspoon more than the recipe calls for should do the trick and take this from "bland to tasty"!!!!!!!!
    Bland, the sauce does not have a good texture, plus takes too long to make... Not worth the result.
    Made this for a side on Easter for 20. Tripled everything but added more onion ,worsteshire, garlic salt and added about 1/2 of parm into the noodles and the rest on top. Love this for a big party can be made ahead and come to room temp before baking.
    Loved this recipe! Added a little extra onion, worchestishire sauce, and garlic salt to make sue that it would have enough was sooo good!!!
    I loved this. I added extra parm and some mozzerella. My husband went nuts over this. Thank you Paula! I love these easy and great recipes.
    I started making this when I first saw the "Bag Lady" episode with my daughter. Her & I both loved it!! My husband was deployed to Iraq at the time., & when we tried to find it after he came home, in my recipe "notebooks" we couldn"t. When we pulled it up on-line, I made it according to the current instructions. It was not nearly as good, and even my daughter (10 by then) did not like it anymore, much less my husband. After going over it again, I agree with another reviewer. The instructions and ingredients just aren't the same. By adding the Parm to the mix, and coating the top with more, it turned out better, but still just not quite "there". I will continue to look for my original recipe, and in the mean time, "doctor up" the newer one I have. Someday, I will get it back to it's origanal, if I never accomplish anything else. The original was so creamy and flavorful, I hate to think that it is lost. Especially with my daughter, (13 now), as she is a HUGE Mac & Cheese fan, and hasn't come across one she didn"t like. This one is and was a good change of pace. Oh, and did I mention CREAMY!!! Really like the super fine/thin noodles too. Oh and so CREAMY!!!
    Ok heres the deal, I have been making this for about 4 years now ever since I got the recipe on the show. Somehow, and i have no idea how, the recipe I have is different from this one!! Im not sure if I wrote it down wrong either cause I thought I had looked at the recipe online before too but this time I havnt made it in awhile so I was double checking the measurements but I saw it said parmesan and i use MOZZERELLA!!

    So I use mozzerella and i dont put in onion because were not big onion eaters and i just dash the worstchestire sauce in till i think its as much as we like and was LOVE it. its my comfort food!
    great alternative to mac and cheese. Good flavor and great for a meal or side dish.
    It was all right... there really is not a lot of flavour. I put the parmesan in the pasta mix and sprinkled cheddar on top. I didn't get a lot of flavour from the worchestershire. My husband liked it a lot though (which is why I'm giving it three stars, otherwise I would give one), but I tend to like spicier and more flavourful foods.
    I think the "spec" receipe is good... but I like the Parmesan mixed in and then some higher grade cheddar on top. I did not see the overly Worcestershire taste others remaked of, but I eyeballed it. It's worth the try, modify to preference :)
    Oh Paula I'm so sorry...I've never given you a review like this but this dish is just not good. I really think this recipe is incorrect. Like another reviewer I am getting to the point that I no longer trust the recipes on this sight. Paula, PLEASE slow down and let's get them right.
    I am almost getting to where I don't trust the receipes on this site anymore, because there is no way I believe that Paula Deen would come up with anything that tastes as bad as this. I am a very good cook, but I really have never learned to "tweek" it's important that a recipe be correct as written. If you may this to the letter, all you will taste is the worshestershire sauce...the whole mixture together tastes like blue cheese with noodles.
    It's ok if you are starving, but nothing I would invest in again.
    I tweaked this recipe because I know how flawed they can be on this site. I used Ramen noodles, two packages and it worked well. Use a 9X9 pan or round equivalent. For some reason, Paula's recipes are usually missing this information. It's also the case in her cookbooks. Bake for 30 minutes, not 45. Plenty of cheese along with a healthy dose of salt makes it tangy and tasty!
    I liked the recipe, Love Paula, but thought I'd add a little flavor the next time. I added a little of each: diced sun-dried tomato, chopped marinated artichoke heart and chopped kalamata olives. Made it kind of greek and loved it. It can be very versatile.
    Nothing to brag about. Seemed like it was missing something. OK dish for hotdogs.
    I was pretty disappointed in this recipe. The worchestershire was all I could taste. I won't make this again.
    I would agree with the reviews that place this dish in the "bland" category. I think that I would try adding a dijon mustard to the dish instead of the worstershire sauce. My husband was nice enough to eat it, but we prefer a simple mac and cheese sauce over this one.
    I've made this twice in the past week, and my family (picky daughter and picky husband) both loved it... even my hubby who doesn't like sour cream! It's rich without being greasy, but so easy to put together then leave baking in the oven while you do other things. Yum!
    I read everyone's reviews before I made this recipe. I made these modifications: Reduce cottage cheese to 3/4 cup; add 1/4 cup milk; add 1/4 tsp. of white pepper; omit garlic salt; add 1/2 tsp kosher salt; add 1/4 tsp garlic powder. For topping: reduce parmesean to 1/2 cup; mix with 1/2 cup crushed Ritz crackers. Try it this way, you won't be sorry!
    These noodles don'thave very much taste to them.Very plain.I drowned them in ketchup and they were edible. Probably won't make them again.
    This is the perfect dish for homestyle noodles. Easy to make!
