very easy to make and good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love it. We make it all the time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow! Such simple ingredients, but the flavor is a wonderful surprise! YES! I would make this again (and again, and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe has been around for years. It was in my old Betty Crocker cookbook. It is good and simple to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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"!!!!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Bland, the sauce does not have a good texture, plus takes too long to make... Not worth the result. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this recipe! Added a little extra onion, worchestishire sauce, and garlic salt to make sue that it would have enough flavor...it was sooo good!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
great alternative to mac and cheese. Good flavor and great for a meal or side dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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 :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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" receipies...so 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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Nothing to brag about. Seemed like it was missing something. OK dish for hotdogs. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was pretty disappointed in this recipe. The worchestershire was all I could taste. I won't make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the perfect dish for homestyle noodles. Easy to make! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This noodle dish is great! You can layer it like lasagna with veggies in tween, make it more like an alfredo and use it for leftovers! It is a great basic recipe to make your own. I added white pepper for kick, nutmeg, and garlic powder of course, and a touch of lemon for freshness. I have to add parm. cheese to body of dish cuz I love the flavor. I have adapted this dish in a cold form as well w/mayo & sour cream for tuna or u can use grilled chicken and granny smith apples w/this for crunch and sweetness. It works well with shrimp cold or hot but I add some hot sauce for this adaptation. Thank you Paula. I always have a serious need for salad and hot dishes for community functions. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a very good and easy recipe. If you have a vegetarian at your family gatherings as I do, it makes for a quick and tasty way to be sure they are considered. I like it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This meal is a great solution when you don't feel like cooking or forgot to take something out of the freezer. Paired with a salad - it's a complete meal. Even my 12 month old eats this one ;-) item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe was just "okay". Wasn't bad, but definately was not great. It was really lacking in flavor. If I ever chose to make it again, I would surely add something to it to help pick up the flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Such a rich and pleasing taste. What a wonderful side dish. I used it with Roast Beef and it went well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome! Excellent alternative, but would concur with comments about cooking time if you want it moist and slightly creamy. We love crunchy topped pasta, so a few minutes under the broiler wouldn't go a miss especially if you're shortening the time. I have used the recipe as is and have substituted with English farmhouse cheddar. Mmmmmmmmm! Go nuts with the Worcestershire sauce, it marries nicely with the cheddar like Welsh rarebit does. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought the recipe would be a little creamier but it wasn't. My family did eat it but requested that I not make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a very easy dish to make but it was way too bland. It might be a good dish for kids since it doesn't have an overwhelming flavor to it. I do appreciate the "history" behind this dish since it was one of Paula's meals she made when she was first starting out but I probably will not make this one again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this dish was too boring for my family...it seemed like a good base but needed something added. my mother put salsa on it and said it tasted better...i think you could add almost anything to it to spice it up item not reviewed by moderator and published

The next time I make this recipe, it was easy, I will add just little more sour cream than it called for. My noodles were a little dry. That could be my oven so I'm just going to make that one little adjustment. Thanks Paula!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading earlier reviews I was a bit nrevous, but decided to go by-the-book. I cooked as wriiten... I may have added more than 6oz of noodles, and added 1 can peas. The finished recipe was very tasty, I served it with fried ham & cheese sandwiches. This has great potential for a tasty casserole dish. Next night with leftovers cut up some kielbasa, a little onion and MMmm, mmmm. Will cook again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was the blandest dish that i have ever made- no taste whatsoever. i am hesitant to try out more of paula's dishes! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was alittle worried about making this when most of the comments came back that were not very good. This is awesome. I used lots of cheese on the top and it tasted almost like fettucine. I did not change a thing and will make it again for sure. You gotta love noodles. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wasn't expecting a WOW side dish...but, the recipe certainly made one. My children loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These noodles were delicious. They were easy to make, and my family loved them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is proof that you dont have to drown your pasta in sauces to have a delicious pasta dish. I used it as a side dish and my family loved it. I also tried Paula's sourcream muffins with this meal and I havn't prepared a meal without them since then. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good and easy! My husband really liked this recipe and I will make it again. That is why I give it 5 stars. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this because it was made out of ingredients I keep in my kitchen everyday. It was super simple and turned out great! It almost tasted like a cross between mac and cheese and fettucine alfredo. Highly recommend. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe, exactly as directed and it was fine. There was nothing wrong with it but it just didn't have much to it. My kids actually passed on it as well. It reminds me of a kugel and would probably be a good base to add some scallions and browned ground chicken or something, just to make it more substantial. Just not Paula's best effort but I'll keep trying. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The noodles are cooked, just add the other ingredients to the noodles, sprinkle grated cheese on top, bake in oven till top gets brown, 5 min. and you have a flavorful dish without baking it for 45 min.terry pompano beach fl. item not reviewed by moderator and published
since there is no egg in this recipe the noodles dont hold very well, and it is prity tasteless, sorry!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried the Cheese Noodles (Bag Lady) and thought they did not have much flavor. I really think 1 cup of parmesean was too much for the top. My kids did not care for them either. I still love Paula though! item not reviewed by moderator and published
To be honest, I haven't made this yet, but am planning on making it this week. I may tweak the recipe a little, but I watched her make it yesterday and it sounds a whole lot like something my mom made when I was little and I loved it - Noodles Romanoff. I am very excited to try it, as the product is no longer available! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavor was good but it was just too dry. Maybe I cooked it too long...or maybe it needed something else...but it was almost inedible. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just watched a repeat of the show. Paula repeats several times to bake the noodles for 20 - 25 minutes -- not the 45 minutes listed in the recipe. This should help those who said it was too dried out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i was expecting these to be more like baked macaroni and chesse. it was an ok receipe. very easy but not sure i will make them again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I substituted ricotta for the cottage cheese and it was wonderful! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this dish was very simple to make and accompanied a steak dinner so it was light and went well with a heavy meat. The only thing I would add more of is salt but all in all I thought it was delightful. The 3 Gourmet Girls that meet once a month and critique a new recipe that we bring all enjoyed it too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this dish but like an idiot, I put in uncooked noodles! I added more milk and a little water so the noodles cooked while it baked. It was still ok. I will give it another try and do it the right way. It wasn't quite as cheesy as I thought it should be. item not reviewed by moderator and published
None of us thought this dish tasted as good as is looked. I did take some of the other reviewers' advice and browned my onions in a little olive oil since I don't like the taste the raw onion without some caramelization. I wish I had followed another suggestion to mix the Parmesan in with the other ingredients and top the casserole with another type of cheese shortly before the end of baking. As it is, you don't get the flavor of the Parmesan in the actual casserole and when you do get to the crusty topping, it is too overpowering by itself. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Like many of the viewers, I found the recipe good but missing something. I've played with it many ways, from adding pease or mushrooms, even chicken and corn. I've add some different spices as well. I think it's a good recipe for a foundation for the individual cook to add their touch to. Be creative and enjoy. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This super-fast super-easy dish is a hit @ my house!! Perfectly simple, but really rich taste! I had some cooked shrimp in the fridge and added it, along with 1/2 tsp cayenne, 1 tsp lemon pepper, and I used house seasoning instead of garlic salt. My husband and I almost ate the whole thing!!!Another hit!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
terribly bland! I don't know if I did something wrong, or if it was actually supposed to be so boring, but it's only saving-grace was the parmesan on top. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish looked really good, but in true paula style definately not for us dieters! I changed things around a little. I used fat free sour cream, low fat cottage cheese, reduced fat parm., and low carb angel hair pasta. My recipe came out a little dry, but I misread the amount of pasta on the side of the box. Next time I think it'll come out closer to hers. The flavor was definately all there though! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was really good & easy. I know some people thought that the noodles were a bit bland but I don't think they're meant to have a really stong taste. They make a great side dish and super easy to make. I added some of the parmesan cheese to the cottage cheese mixture along with salt & pepper. Thanks Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I thought the dish was wonderful. Next time I will skip the parmesean cheese on top because I don't think it added to the flavor (just extra calories). item not reviewed by moderator and published
and easy. Liked being able to prepare ahead of time and then baking just before serving. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love Paula Deen (have two of her cookbooks) but this one was not a winner. I think that the flavor was lacking something. The basic ingredients present a good jumping off point but I think that the recipe needs to be tweeked to provide a more complex flavor and (perhaps) shorter cooking time for more creaminess . . . item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy, excellent side dish. I use low fat sour cream & low fat cottage cheese and mixed the parmesan right in instead of sprinkling on top...doesn't changes a thing. Might try adding some ham and veggies for a casserole. Reheats in the microwave beautifully. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found this mild flavored noodle recipe to be a wonderful compliment to a marinated prime rib. It isn't as bold as some of Paula's recipes but definitely has a good flavor. Some reviews mentioned it was very bland. I used a more expensive parmesean cheese and grated it myself. Parmesean cheese in a can tends to be rather flavorless. I also used regular cottage, NOT low fat. - I'm going to try it again with a gorgonzola or bleu cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Cheese Noodles is a great treat from my every day cooking with pasta, My family love this, Fixed it for dinner with green beans and salada and dinner was great..Many thanks to Paula Deen again outstanding and this is from the BagLady cooking Thanks Dee item not reviewed by moderator and published
I watched The Bag Lady today and couldn't wait to try this recipe. I had all of the ingredients, but after reading the other reviews, I decided to add a few things. I added 2 tsp. fresh minced garlic, 1/2 cup parmesan, 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt, 1/2 tsp. black pepper. I mixed the parmesan in with the cottage cheese and sour cream and then topped the dish with 1 cup grated monterey jack cheese. I cooked it for 20 minutes, and also used whole wheat Zanellini noodles. It turned out wonderfully! Thanks Paula, I love your show! item not reviewed by moderator and published

It was too bland for me, it was missing something, I tried riccotta cheese instead of cottage cheese, still not quite right, I think that I will use mozarella next time item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did not like this at all, no flavor,very boring. Years ago a friend gave me a receipe close to this but much better. Saute one whole onion, slice in one stick of butter or margerine, when onions sligtly browned add cooked noodles and whole container of cottage cheese, have also added chicken to this, and is very good. I enjoy Paula a lot, but this was a loser. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Recipe was very easy to make-however it is somewhat bland. It needs something to give it more taste-I'm just not sure what. I personally didn't care for it but my 23 year old daughter loved it--and her 3 year old daughter said it was delicious. I don't plan to make this dish again..unless my daughter or grand-daughter requests it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These noodles are just o.k. You could definitely add some things to it to make it better. I added some cooked chopped chicked and some cooked broccoli, for a one dish meal, and my husband really liked it. But I still felt it needed something else....just not sure what. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A good substitute for potatoes and something a little different. I would make again especially when going to a potluck. item not reviewed by moderator and published
