When I was researching how to make these noodles I found this fun Betty Crocker Romanoff Noodles Ad on YouTube; it was cute to watch! Betty Crocker’s slogan was “At a great Russian restaurant you’d have Noodles Romanoff, a dish for a grand duchess. And at home, you can eat like a grand duchess with Betty Crocker Noodles Romanoff.”
Where does Noodles Romanoff originate?
- Noodles Romanoff was invented at a restaurant in LA named “Romanoffs,” owned by Micheal Romanoff.
- When Romanoff’s went out of business, the dish was then served at Stouffer’s Top of the Rock Restaurant.
- After Stouffer’s restaurant closed that restaurant, they transferred noodles Romanoff to their frozen food division.
- Other brands made noodle Romanoff as well, such as Betty Crocker in a box form.
How to make noodles Romanoff
- Noodles – I recommend fettuccine, egg noodles, or other wide noodles
- Salted butter
- Sour cream – or Greek unflavored yogurt for flavor & texture contrast
- Seasonings – salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Paprika is used on top to finish the dish off.
- Parmesan Cheese- cheddar, Swiss, Gouda or Gruyere also work well with noodles Romanoff because they’re all semi hard cheeses that melt well like Parmesan would. Gorgonzola is another good choice if you want something more blue color to your noodles! Aged white cheddar will give it a nutty flavor.
Can I use different noodles?
- Yes! You can use noodles of your choice. I would recommend noodles that are thicker and wider, such as fettuccine noodles for Romanoff noodles.
- This recipe can be found in many different cuisines but the noodles used are typically egg noodles. You can use any noodles you want for this recipe, so feel free to experiment!

- Spray a small baking dish (about an 8×8 will work well) with non-stick spray. Add the noodles and sauce to the baking dish.
