{penne casserole}

This is by far the most requested recipe on our home.  I finally had to tell the kids I would make it once every other week.  It is very easy to double if you want to freeze one, take one to a friend, or your cooking for a large crowd.  We like to serve it with a green salad and french bread.


1lb ground beef
28 oz spaghetti sauce
8oz cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup cottage cheese
1 stick of butter
1lb penne pasta
2 cups grated chedder cheese

Preheat oven to 350.  Boil the noodles.  Mix cream cheese, cottage cheese, and sour cream until sooth.  I use my kitchen aid and mix it while the noodles are cooking.  Cut butter into slices and place it in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.  Brown ground beef add a little garlic salt to season.  When meat is browned add spaghetti sauce and simmer on low stirring occasionally.  Drain noodles when done and immediately add to baking dish. Stir noodles around to melt butter and make sure all the noodles are coated.  Spread cream cheese mixture over the noodles being careful to cover noodles completely.  Add meat sauce on top of the cream cheese layer and spread evenly.  Cook for 20 minutes then take out of the oven and add the grated cheese then put back into the oven for another 20 minutes.  Cook uncovered.  Enjoy!
