Lasagna Casserole

I originally found this yummy dish on Brooke's blog but decided to change its name. I, too, subbed in mozzarella instead of cheddar, and that plus the ricotta, sauce, etc... it just seemed much less cheeseburger-ish and much more lasagna-ish.

This dinner was absolutely delish... although with all of that pasta goodness, I really wasn't expecting anything less.

  • 5 cups uncooked egg noodles
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef or turkey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce - I used about 3 cups of homemade sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1 cup reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced, divided
  • 2/3 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese

Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook beef and garlic until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, sugar, salt and pepper; heat through. Drain noodles; stir into beef mixture. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, ricotta cheese and sour cream until blended. Stir in half of the onions. Spoon half of the noodle mixture into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with cheese mixture and remaining noodle mixture. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until heated through and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with remaining onions.
