Sour Cream Noodles Recipe
The name Romanoff comes from the LA restaurant where this dish is said to have been invented. However, you may also know it as simply, sour cream noodles.
Sour cream is the main ingredient in the sauce so be sure to use a brand you already know and love. In this version, we do cut the tartness slightly with a bit of cream cheese but if you’re a retro recipe purist and want to go all in with the sour cream experience, go for it.
Quick Tip for Success
Please note that this pasta is best served hot, right out of the oven. This is not a dish to make ahead or bring to a potluck. The reason is that, as it sits, the pasta will begin to soak up the sauce which can lead to a less creamy aka drier pasta experience and no one wants that. So, have your side salad ready to go and the table set so you can fully enjoy the decadence that is Noodles Romanoff.
