DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  • In a large skillet cook the beef with the onions, garlic, bell pepper, Italian seasoning, mushrooms and chili flakes until the beef is no longer pink; drain fat, then season with seasoned salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add in the Parmesan cheese and pasta sauce; mix to combine, then simmer for about 20 minutes over medium-low heat.
  • In a large bowl combine the spinach (squeeze out any excess moisture in the spinach with hands) with 2-1/2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, egg, green onion, garlic powder and 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese; mix to combine, then fold in cooked egg noodles.
  • Spoon the spinach mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  • Sprinkle with about 1 cup Parmesan cheese (can use less).
  • Top evenly with the ground beef mixture, then sprinkle about 1 cup Parmesan cheese over the ground beef mixture.
  • Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes; remove from oven then sprinkle with about 1-1/2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese on top.
  • Return to oven and bake for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
  • Delicious!
