Cheese-Topped Beef Bake

“Looking for something quick but 'different' for dinner one night, I was browsing through a Taste of Home cookbook,“ shares Debbie Pirlot from Green Bay, Wisconsin. “I found two easy recipes with similar ingredients and decided to combine them. The result is this rich and delicious recipe that my family really enjoys.“

    This is a regular on the menu at my house. We both love it,and it's easy to make! Makes great leftover lunches as well.

    It was alright, but the cream cheese topping was kind of weird. I wouldn't make it again.

    DDL ask for recipe! She thought that it was super--similar to lasagna but much easier. Granddaughter loved the cheese.

    This was so good. I added garlic to the beef and more spaghetti sauce then called for. Great leftovers. A keeper for sure.
