This is my all-time, favorite casserole. I originally got the recipe, known to me as "Green Onion Casserole" from a woman I worked for. I added oregano to the tomato sauce, and replaced one can of sauce with diced tomatoes. Next time I will use italian flavored. I also made it light by using FF sour cream, light cream cheese, light cheddar cheese, and ground turkey breast for half of the beef.

After noting its familiar taste, I discovered that with the exception of the sour cream, this recipe is exactly like Company's Coming Casseroles "Good Time Casserole" I prefer this one though; the extra creaminess is wonderful. I think next time, instead of layering the ingredients (which I found a bit of a challenge!), I'm just going to mix them all together and topping with cheese. Some of the noodles were quite dry and we ended up mixing it on our plates anyway. Definitely making this again though -- thanks!
Our entire family enjoyed this recipe. We all had seconds! A definite keeper. (Note: I used half the amount of salt -- one tablespoon is so much! -- and it was still plenty salty. I also made it light w/ lower fat beef, s. cream, & cream cheese, and it was *delicious*.)
This was wonderful. I loved the combination of flavours. We added corn and peas to the recipe as well. It was very tasty! Thanks so much for a great recipe!
All of my Children loved this! It was very easy to cook! Next time we make this we are going to add cottage cheese instead of cream cheese! Thank you for this recipe it was very very good it was like lasagna casserole!!
As a mom of two toddler boys, I find quick and easy recipes like this one so helpful! I did make a couple of "mommy-friendly" tweeks, such as swapping garlic for garlic powder, leaving out the scallions, and adding the sour cream/cream cheese mixture to the meat sauce mixture. (If I would have had a larger pot, I would have combined the noodles with the sauce mixture. That would have saved me from layering all together!) Anyhow, I did use egg noodles and layered the noodles with the sauce/creamy mixture. Topped with shredded cheese and presto! My picky toddlers feasted! Very delicious.
Nice weeknight meal. I did mix the meat mixture with the noodles, only because it made sense to me. :)
Really yummy! I left out the sugar and the scallions, and used low-fat ingredients. Love that cream cheese mixture - makes it tastle like a delish lasagna, but way easier. My toddler gobbled it up!! Thanks for sharing.
I was looking for something quick and yummy to do with hamburger meat...my family and I loved it! I was even able to sneak whole wheat pasta in without them noticing! There is nothing fancy about this recipe, but it is a great family dinner choice! Thanks :) Also thinking this might be good with ground turkey meat for a change.
