Ingredients
  Wide egg noodles 4 Ounce, uncooked
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Lean ground beef 1 Pound
  Italian sauce 16 Ounce (2 Cups)
  Cream cheese 8 Ounce, cubed and softened to room temperature
  Cottage cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sour cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Finely shredded parmesan cheese 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
Directions

Cook 4 oz. noodles in a medium to large pot, which has been filled half-way with water and seasoned with 1 teaspoon salt. Cook for about 8 minutes, or until al dente (chewy, not mushy). Drain, and place noodles in a greased 11-inch by 7-inch baking dish. Set aside. Meanwhile, brown 1 pound ground beef in a large skillet, stirring until it is crumbly and no longer pink. Skim off any excess fat and discard. Stir in 2 cups of Italian sauce, and set aside. In a medium-sized bowl, combine 8 oz. cream cheese, 1 cup cottage cheese, and 1/2 cup sour cream. Spread mixture over noodles in baking dish. Spoon beef mixture over cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until casserole is bubbly and cheese on top is beginning to brown. Serve immediately. I hope you enjoy this Italian-style casserole, after all the turkey, ham, and traditional holiday dishes you have been having lately! Enjoy!!!
