California Combo

This was always a family favorite when we were growing up! It is a tasty twist on your traditional lasagna dish. It is one of those recipes my mom told me over the phone a long time ago with no real measurements so I did my best tonight to keep track of how much of everything I was putting in. It is one of my all time favorites!

- about 8 oz. noodles, cooked (I used my GlutenFree Penne)
- 1 lb. hamburger
- 1/2 c. onion, diced
- 1 c. sour cream (I use FF)
- 8 oz. cream cheese (I use reduced fat)
- 1 jar (1 lb. 10oz) spaghetti sauce
- 4 green onions, diced
- cheddar cheese to top dish

- Cook beef and onion in sauce pan, drain. Stir jar of sauce into pan and heat through.
- Sautee green onions in a little butter.
- Cream together sour cream and cream cheese. Stir green onions into mixture.
- In lightly greased casserole dish layer noodles, cream cheese mixture and meat mixture. Repeat layers again and top with enough shredded cheese to cover top.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
I actually cooked 16 oz. noodles tonight but only used about half of them. I like to go heavy on the sauces, otherwise you may be able to do a 9x13 dish. I had enough for an 8x8 and then a little extra as shown. The cream cheese mixture is what makes this sooo good!
