One-Dish Recipes for Busy Paralegals: Lynne’s Company Casserole

One-Dish Recipes for Busy Paralegals: Lynne’s Company Casserole

It’s hard to find time to cook in my family, with a full-time paralegal job and an extremely busy teenager who doesn’t drive yet. Once in a while, I used to run into a local eatery after work and pick up our favorite “Company Casserole,” but I realized I could probably make a larger casserole at home for less money – and get more meals out of it.

Lynne’s Company Casserole first time out – but add tweaks below!

So I googled the key ingredients of this delicious casserole, i.e. I knew it had sour cream, egg noodles, beef, and tomato sauce in it, and found Marcia’s Company Casserole at I baked it last week, and recommend tweaking it as follows to make it Lynne’s Company Casserole:

  • Substitute your own fave tomato sauce, store-bought or homemade, for the two 8-oz cans of tomato sauce. Go crazy! Otherwise, the recipe as is can be a little bland; I ended up spicing up the sauce mixture quite a bit during the cooking process.
  • Add a few more ounces of egg noodles – they are YUMMY!
  • During the last five minutes of cooking, top with mozzarella cheese.

It is an awesome and rich dish – wonderful to have ready after a long day at the law office or corporate legal department.

I’d like to make “One-Dish Recipes for Busy Paralegals” a regular Saturday post at Practical Paralegalism. Got a great one-dish (including crock pot) recipe to share? Email it to me at – I would love a picture, too, so snap it and share it the next time you make it!

  1. Looks yummy, Lynne…will definitely be adding this to my "to try" list. It will be perfect with a green salad and crusty bread — and maybe some leftover Halloween candy!
