Party Casserole

by

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

A simplified -- but delicious -- lasagna for cooks who like to get out of the kitchen fast. This easy-to-prepare dish can be made ahead and refrigerated until you're ready to bake it.

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces medium-wide spinach noodles
  • 1 to 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Instructions:

Cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.

In a nonstick skillet, brown the meat and the onion. Add the tomato sauce and oregano. Taste and adjust the seasonings, if desired.

Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, scallions, salt, and pepper.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. To assemble the casserole, grease a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish. Layer half the noodles, all the cream cheese mixture, the remaining noodles, and the meat sauce. Top with the Parmesan cheese, if desired. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes. Serve hot.

    I did make a couple of changes only because I am always changing things and I did not have the green onions. I added 1 teaspoon chopped parsley, 1/2 teaspoon basil, and increased the oregano to 1 teaspoon. I love a lot of flavor … but there is nothing wrong with the original recipe … it is great.
