There are many, many versions of this classic comfort food. Here’s one that’s been lightened up a bit that you can try for dinner tonight.
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground turkey
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon sugar
2 8-ounce cans Italian-style tomato sauce
1 8-ounce package egg noodles
6 scallions, chopped
1 3-ounce package light cream cheese
1 cup light sour cream
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Combine butter through sugar in a pan and saute until meat is done.
Add tomato sauce and simmer 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions.
Blend cream cheese and sour cream together; add scallions to cream cheese mixture.
In a slightly greased casserole, place 1/3 of the noodles, then 1/3 of scallion mixture, then 1/3 of the meat sauce; repeat twice.
Top casserole with the shredded cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
