READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Smilyn

I think I got this out of an old Mormon cook book. I'm not Mormon myself, but they sure had some good recipes. Alternative to Hamburger Helper! Makes quite a bit.

Great recipe! I changed things around quite a bit, but the combo of the cream cheese, cott. cheese, and sour cream were great! I made mine sort of like a lasagna and the family loved it! I sauted the beef with the onions and green pepper and then added fresh garlic, salt, and pepper to taste. I then threw in a jar of my fav. spagetti sauce. I boiled some barilla plus noodles and tossed them in olive oil and parm. cheese. I then placed the noodle mixture into a greased pan. Then I topped them with the 1 cup lowfat cott. cheese, 2 tbsp sour cream, 1/2 package of cream cheese and 1/2 tsp garlic powder. Then I poured the meat sauce over the cheese mixture and topped with parm. cheese and colby jack (it was all I had:)! It turned out excellent!!!!
