Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cook ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble meat; drain well.

Step 2

Add tomato, next 6 ingredients, and if desired, bay leaf. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove and discard bay leaf. Set aside.

Step 3

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain; set aside.

Step 4

Combine sour cream and cream cheese in a medium bowl; beat at low speed of an electric mixer until smooth. Gently stir in noodles and green onions.

Step 5

Place half the noodle mixture in a greased 11 x 7 x 1 1/2 inch baking dish; top with half the beef mixture. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese.

Step 6

Repeat the layers with remaining noodle mixture, beef mixture, and Cheddar cheese. Cover and bake at 350° for 20 minutes.

Step 7

Remove from oven; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake 3 minutes or until the cheese melts and the mixture is hot and bubbly.

This is super easy to prepare, and there are so many wonderful flavors going on in this baked beef and cheesy noodle dish! I really liked the addition of the green onions in this dish. I didn't have the right size (11x7) dish listed in the recipe instructions, so I used my 12x8 dish (as I thought 9x13 might be too big). Next time I'll go with the 9x13 though because it looked a little squished in my little baker. It was still quite delicious, and I will make this again because it's so good and it's very easy to make. Thanks for another "keeper", breezermom.
