– Garlic: 2 teaspoons (minced)

– Italian seasoning: 1 teaspoon

  1. I always set the temperature of your oven to 350 degrees before starting.
  2. Saute the ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat on the stove until it is completely browned. And please drain any extra grease.
  3. You’ll want to add the Italian seasoning and minced garlic to the skillet, and saute for an additional 30 seconds.
  4. After that, pour the tomato sauce and sugar into the skillet with the meat. Immediately add salt and pepper to taste, and saute for 3 to 5 minutes more.
  5. Then you’re going to get a bowl and mix in the sour cream and the cream cheese.
  6. Okay now, you can cook the egg noodles until done to your liking and drain totally.
  7. Half the egg noodles needs to be placed in an even layer in the bottom of a greased 9×13 baking dish.
  8. For this part, top the noodles with ½ of the cream cheese mixture and then ½ of the meat mixture.
  9. Make sure to repeat with another layer of noodles, cream cheese mixture and then ground beef on top.
  10. The cheese should be sprinkled on the top of the casserole at this stage. To finish, remember to bake for about 20 to 25 minutes.
