  • Cook ground beef and sausage in a large, deep skillet until well browned, about 5 minutes. Drain fat. Stir in pasta sauce. Bring to a simmer.

  • While sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Stir in the egg noodles. Boil until cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well.

  • Spoon half of the meat sauce into the prepared baking dish. Top with half of the cooked noodles, and 1 1/2 packages of cheese slices. Repeat with remaining sauce, noodles, and cheese.

  • Place uncovered dish in preheated oven. Bake, until cheese is melted and browned, about 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

YUMMY!!!! Of course I made some changes. I only need half of this recipe so I halfed it. I only used ground beef and I left out the sausage. That way I wouldn't have half a pound of sausage and ground beef left over. I also only used 8 oz of swiss cheese and I shredded it. I used whole wheat egg noodles and no one knew. It was so good. The whole family loved it. The only thing I would change would be the cooking instructions. I would cover it and cook for 30 min. and uncover it the last 5 min of cooking. My noodles got a little crunchy and dried out during the baking. Read More

I also only needed 1/2 of the recipe but i used 1/2 beef and 1/2 pork sausage. The sausage is important for the flavor that you want. The other 1/2 pounds of meat make great meat balls when mixed together. I also think gratted cheese is better than sliced. You do need to cover at first then bake uncovered for the last part.This is great and easy. We truly enjoyed it. Read More

We thought this was a very good simple weeknight dinner. My son thought the swiss cheese gave it a somewhat odd taste but my husband said it was good. I halved the recipe and used shredded cheese instead of sliced. Read More

One of my favorite recipes to cook!!!! I have used both beef and sausage and I have also used just sausage. Keep an eye on the noodles and cheese when cooking around the edges they can become very crunchy. Read More

I used a white sauce with chicken sausage and it really went with the Swiss cheese, also added some parm cheese and bread crumbs on top to get a crust. It was great! Thanks Read More
