Ground Beef Cheesy Noodle Casserole

• 1 pound ground beef
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 teaspoon salt
• Dash of pepper
• ½ teaspoon sugar
• 2 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce *
• 6 ounces of egg noodles
• 1 (4 ounce) cream cheese, softened
• 6 green onions, chopped
• 1 cup sour cream
• Cheddar cheese, shredded

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown beef; drain fat. Add next 5 ingredients and simmer. Cook noodles; drain. Mix cream cheese with green onions and sour cream in a small bowl. Add cheese mixture to hot, drained noodles and mix well. In a 9 inch pan, alternate layers of sauce and noodles. Top with shredded cheese. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.

You can use the tomato sauce that has basil, oregano & garlic

This has been one of my new favorite meals and if you don't have tomato sauce you can blend some diced tomatoes and that will work as well.
