Ground lean turkey meat with wheat egg noodles
•Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook beef until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, sugar, salt and pepper; heat through. Drain noodles; stir into beef mixture.
• In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, ricotta cheese and sour cream until blended. Stir in half of the onions.
• Spoon half of the noodle mixture into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with cheese mixture and remaining noodle mixture.
• Cover and bake at 350°(F) for 30 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until heated through and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with remaining onions. Yield: 10 servings.
I use a large casserole dish, spray with Pam then layer the meat/noodle (1/2), add the blended cheese to first layer, then layer the balance of the meat/noodle mixture. Add cheddar cheese the last 10 minutes of baking. Tastes great and good as leftover too.
