Monday's Meal

You know how I love a casserole. So here's a stick to your rib one. Enjoy!


1 1/2 lb. of ground beef
2 (8oz.) cans tomato sauce
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
1 green pepper, chopped finely
2 stalks of celery, chopped finely
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 tbsp vinegar
3 oz. of cream cheese, softened
1 cup of sour cream
1/2 med onion, minced
1 (10 oz.) pkg of egg noodles, cooked according to package
1 cup of mild cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a 9 X 13 casserole dish and set it aside. Brown ground beef. Add onions, celery, green pepper, salt and garlic powder. Add the soup, tomato sauce and vinegar to meat mixture, simmer for approximately 15 mins. In a small bowl mix the cream cheese and sour cream together, add it to the cooked sauce and blend well. Place your cooked noodles in the casserole dish and cover with your sauce mixture. Stir to be sure all the noodles are covered. Top with cheddar cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 20 mins. Remove foil and bake for 10 more minutes are until cheese on top is melted and bubbly.
