Satisfy your gang with this casserole sent in by Shelly Korell. The Eaton, Colorado reader whips up a rich combination or cream cheese, sour cream and cheddar cheese that she layers with lasagna noodles and a beefy sauce.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min. + standing YIELD:8-12 servings


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 can (29 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 12 to 14 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained


  • 1. In a Dutch oven, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the tomato sauce, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  • 2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add the sour cream, 1 cup cheddar cheese and onions; mix well.
  • 3. Spread about 1/2 cup meat sauce into each of two greased 8-in. square baking dishes. Place two to three noodles in each dish, trimming to fit as necessary. Top each with about 1/2 cup cream cheese mixture and 2/3 cup meat sauce. Repeat layers twice. Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheddar cheese over each.
  • 4. Cover and freeze one casserole for up to 1 month. Bake remaining casserole, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly and heated through. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.
  • 5. To use frozen casserole: Thaw in the refrigerator for 18 hours. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 2 casseroles (4-6 servings each).

"I made this recipe to split with my mom. I made one with ground beef and one with turkey since she doesn't like beef. I dislike cottage cheese and ricotta so this recipe is perfect. I did add mozzarella with the cheddar. I had salad and garlic bread on the side. Yum."

"Instead of making 2 lasagnas, I put the whole thing in a 9x11 pan. I find it needs a little extra sauce, so I just put a little of whatever pasta sauce I have on hand over the top. I freeze leftovers in single serve portions. It freezes very well and keeps in the freezer a long time."

"I substituted mozzarella for the cheddar, and my family loved it! They are not fans of traditional lasagna because of the ricotta & cottage cheese so this recipe is awesome. This one will be made often!"

"Super Yum! Made this for my boyfriend and we both loved it. The onion was a surprise and it was really good. Had to use just one onion instead of 4 and less sour cream but more cream cheese which makes a difference! Will do it again for sure!"

"I made this for my daughter and husband. We loved this recipe. The combination of cream cheese and sour cream is very tasty. I made this for my family and they all loved it as well. I do not like lasagna with onion, peppers and tomoato chunks therefore this recipe was perfect! I will be making this again."

"I cut the recipe in half to make 1 casserole. Seemed like there was too much cheese mixture compared to the beef mixture, maybe I should have let it set longer. Very rich-one helping is plenty."

"I liked this recipe, but my boyfriend absolutely LOVED this recipe, which is why I rated it five stars. It's good. I used soy ground "beef" and fat free cream cheese, and it was delicious. I also halved the recipe and made only one casserole instead of two. The next time, I will use more green onions, I think. I ate two small pieces for dinner, and then my boyfriend ate the rest in one sitting!"
