Company Casserole

Got this in an email and plan on trying it eventually....this sounds good, easy and that makes it something I would like to try:-)

Thanks for visiting my blog


Company Casserole

makes 4-6 servings

8 oz wide egg noodles
1 lb ground beef
1/2 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
1 cup cottage cheese
2 green onions, sliced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil then salt generously.  Add the noodles and cook until al dente.  Drain.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the ground beef and the onion over medium-high heat until the beef is browned and cooked through and the onions are tender.  Add half the can of the tomato sauce to the beef, stir to combine, then turn down the heat and let the mixture simmer for 5 minutes.  Stir in the drained egg noodles.  Pour the mixture out into the prepared baking dish.
Spread the cottage cheese over the top of the noodle mixture.  Top with the green onions, reserving a few for topping after the casserole is finished, if desired.  Pour the remaining tomato sauce over the top, then top with the cheddar cheese.  
Bake in the preheated oven until warmed through and the cheese is melted, 15-20 minutes.
Top with the reserved green onions before serving, if desired.
