One of our favorite recipes. We've made it with different kinds of noodles: elbow, egg, shells, and it's always been good. We add more beef, garlic or or cheese depending on how we feel that night. The kids don't even mind the spinach in the mix!

I pretty much like any recipe with pasta, meat and cheese:) I did add extra onions. I also added oregano and an italian season blend. I didn't layer the ingredients, rather mixed them all together and then placed in the dish (my boyfriend isn't a huge fan of spinach..if I mix it in he never notices) I also used extra cheese, a mix of cheddar, mozzarella and an Italian blend ( I love cheese)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, cook beef until brown - drain fat. Stir in tomato sauce, basil, sugar, garlic powder, salt & pepper to taste. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat & simmer uncovered 5 minutes. Combine sour cream, cream cheese, milk & onion. In a greased 2 quart casserole dish or 8x8x2 baking dish, layer 1/2 the noodles, 1/2 the meat, 1/2 the cream cheese mixture and all the spinach. Top with remaining noodles and meat. Chill remaining cream cheese mix. Cover, bake @ 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Spread with remaining cream cheese mixture and top with cheddar cheese. Bake uncovered 10 more minutes.
