Sounds delicious. I'll have to give it a try.

I'm tempted to try this. I'm not much for cream cheese so I may substitute with ricotta. This kind of reminds me of lasagna. I can see where it would be a quicker meal to put together. Has anyone tried it with ground turkey? Either way poultry or beef it does look good to me.

Why can't I save a recipe anymore. I have no save button. I used to.

DELICIOUS! I love the combination of cheese, cream cheese, ground beef, and noodles... all of my comfort food favorites in one casserole!

I don't know who that broke guy husband man was, but his budget-friendly concoction was pretty decent.

Yummm - I always love the combination of cream cheese and ground beef. This was super tasty!
