Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Cheap Dinner with Leftovers! Delicious! I added a red bell pepper and spinach to the mix and seasoned with roasted garlic and herb and black pepper. Served with garlic bread. It was a fast meal that was easy to whip up. We had plenty for leftover lunches and my daughter even asked for seconds! Win Win!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just so luscious! It is so flavorful, because of Hidden Valley Ranch. I like to add some finely diced green pepper and peas. I have also added some frozen, then thawed broccoli florets. I usually add a bit more Ranch powder and sour cream, when I add veggies. EVERYONE LOVES THIS RECIPE!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy and quick, but MUST really like sour cream I read some reviews before making this, so I made some tweaks prior to making- I seasoned the beef while it was cooking with some ranch seasoning, garlic powder, beef bouillon, pepper, and a dash of cayenne. My family likes cheesy stuff so I did also add some cheese. I mixed in only about 2 tbsp of cream cheese to help cream it up some and trying to make more sauce so it wasn’t so dry (then I baked). I think replacing half the sour cream with cream cheese because even adding a bit of cream cheese to try and offset the sour cream taste, it was still a very strong sour cream flavor. Overall, it wasn’t bad. Has potential with some tweaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quick and easy meal! I was looking for something to do with some hamburger I had thawed out and I came across this recipe. I always have these ingredients on hand (I have the big bottle of hidden valley ranch powder) and sour cream and noodles are a staple in my house. It was ready to plate in about 10 minutes. Like others I thought it was zippy but maybe just a smidge lacking (it’s ver one note) so I sprinkled a small bit of cayenne pepper powder across my plate and I believe it really helped. My husband didn’t mind tho and ate 2 helpings! The only change I made was to double the sauce just because we like our noodles saucy. Will definitely make again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wanted to like this :-( I made this for dinner tonight and needless to say, it went in the trash. I wanted to like this because I haven't made a recipe from Hidden Valley Ranch website yet that I didn't like, but I guess there is always a first. It absolutely has a very overwhelming taste of sour cream. I tried to add more seasoning, I tried to add other seasonings, it was just gross.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bland, waste of ingredients. This recipe was very bland. I added extra ranch, salt, pepper, lowrys, and it was just beef and noodle flavor. It wasn’t gross but it needs a lot more to be worth making.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ehh This looked really good & easy. It was very bland though and just seemed to be missing something. No one in my family really liked it and we ended up throwing it out because it wouldn't have gotten eaten anyway.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ok base but needs a lot to be edible So let me start by saying it’s an ok base but by all means it’s gross unless you really add some seasoning. Had to use salt pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, lowery seasoning and Mrs dash plus more ranch seasoning to get it to taste like anything other than beef noodles in sour cream. I wouldn’t make it again. Entire family of 5 agreed on this.
