Jackie's company casserole is a rich, filling, dish that even the kids love. We got the recipe from my mother-in-law's "favorites" recipe file. We're not sure where she got it, but it is a family favorite.

This is a very homey and comfort recipe. It's a very rich recipe but if you are making comfort food, you'd expect it to be higher in fat and calories. PS; every calorie is worth it!

This was a bit rich for my taste. I would probably decrease the amount of cream cheese to 6 oz, double the sauce by another cup and add another 1/2 pound of beef. The way its written it comes out sort of like a stroganoff. I would prefer lasagna, just ricotta. The egg noodles would make a good substitute if you don't have lasagna noodles. Temp 350 and cheddar on top not in cream cheese mix.
