This casserole has been a hit every time. I happened across it when I first started cooking and was looking for something other than Hamburger Helper. It's easy and delicious. I found it in an old cookbook my mother had. The credit for the recipe comes from Marietta Fox in Three Rivers, TX (though I added the can of corn).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix first three ingredients and set aside.
  3. Brown meat in margarine/butter; add tomato sauce, corn and next four ingredients.
  4. Cook noodles as directed on package.
  5. In a buttered 2 quart casserole dish, alternate layers of noodles, beef mixture and cream cheese mixture you have set aside.
  6. Top with grated cheese and back until cheese bubbles, about 30 minutes.

This was an easy recipe that just needed a little more something in my opinion. I liked the green onion in the creamy mixture but the tomato mixture would have benefited from some garlic and/or more spices. The 2 cans of tomato sauce was a little confusing as I used 2 standard cans that were 15 oz. each then realized this was twice as much as called for. Wondered if it was supposed to be 2 cans of tomato paste. Overall, a pretty good recipe that most of my family liked but not for someone trying to cut back on calories :)

My husband and I loved this recipe!Easy to make! The only thing we thought of adding to this recipe was maybe a layer of extra cheese in the middle. 5 Star meal!
