“Very delicious casserole that even the kids will love. You can use any noodles really or mix together leftovers you have. Also, you can use ground chicken or turkey instead of beef and neufchatel cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese to make it a bit healthier. You can prepare this up to 24 hours ahead of time and backs for an hour.”

  1. Grease 2 quart casserole or 2 quart square baking dish. Prepare noodles and set aside.
