1 ½ lbs. lean ground beef
2 (8-oz.) cans tomato sauce
2 ½ teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon garlic salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 (8-oz.) carton sour cream
½ cup thinly sliced green onion
1 (8 oz.) pkg. wide noodles, cooked and drained
1 ½ cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Cook ground beef until browned; drain well.
Add tomato sauce, sugar, garlic salt and pepper; stir to combine and set aside.
Combine cream cheese and sour cream; stir until smooth.
Stir in onion.
In a 2 ½-quart oblong or 8-inch square baking dish, layer noodles, ground beef mixture, cream cheese mixture and shredded cheese.
Cook according to your Advantium model's cooking settings or until bubbly.
Microwaving can make short work of browning ground beef. Crumble ground beef in a microwave-safe colander. Place the colander in a round glass casserole. Place dish on white ceramic tray. Cook at U=0 L=0 M=10 for 6 to 8 minutes (for 1 pound) or until no pink color remains. The beef cooks and drains in one simple step.
