You mentioned you had noodles, this uses egg noodles and ground beef.  I have made this before and it is very good.

Beef Stroganoff


Ingredients:
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 (4.5 ounce) can mushrooms, drained
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup beef broth
1 (8 ounce) package wide egg noodles
Directions:
1. Break up ground meat into a large skillet, and add onion, mushrooms, garlic powder, and mustard powder. Cook and stir over medium heat until the meat is browned and onion is tender. Drain off excess fat.
2. In a small bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, and beef broth. Stir into beef mixture, and cook over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Do not stir too much.
3. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until done. Drain. Serve sauce over hot noodles.
