Good 37º drizzly morning.
The snow yesterday..........
The on and off ramps to I-5 here in Rogue River......
I was glad I didn't have to go anywhere in the snow. Not that the snow is a problem, just the idiot drivers are!
By noon the sun was breaking through and the snow was melting...
Bruiser had been out and about ...
Of course when he came home, Mr. Muddy Feet had to get up on my desk!
By 2:pm the snow was all melted. At least up at the ski resort at Mt. Ashland they finally got enough snow to open today.
Think of this casserole as comfort food at its best; it has hearty, hearty, hearty written all over it! Make it ahead for hectic weeknights. Then just toss a bag of salad greens with your favorite dressing, and supper's on the table!
What You'll Need:

- 1 pound ground chuck
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 (8-ounce) package fresh mushrooms, sliced

- 2 cups (8-ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
What To Do:
Preheat oven to 350º.
Cook noodles according to package directions; drain and keep warm.
Meanwhile, cook ground chuck in a large skillet, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain and return to skillet. Stir in onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Cover and cook over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
Stir in beef broth, tomato paste and oregano; set aside.
Combine sour cream, cottage cheese, garlic and salt. Add noodles, tossing to coat. Spread half of noodle mixture in a lightly greased 9- x 13-inch baking dish.
