Get ready for a fill-ya-up meal the whole family is going to love! Our Healthier Hamburger Casserole is made with lean ground beef and some of your favorite veggies! But, unlike those other hamburger casserole recipes, we've lightened ours up to fit in with your diabetes diet. Don't worry. The family won't be able to tell the difference. After just one bite, they'll already be anxious for seconds!

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups uncooked no-yolk egg noodles
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (95% lean)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) package fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 (8-ounce) can no salt added tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 scallions, sliced, divided
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a 9-x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain well.
  2. Meanwhile in a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef, red bell pepper, and mushrooms until beef is no longer pink; drain liquid. Stir in tomato sauce, garlic, pepper, and noodles. 
  3. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and sour cream; mix until smooth. Stir in half the scallions.
  4. Spoon half the noodle mixture into baking dish. Top with cheese mixture and remaining noodle mixture. 
  5. Cover and bake 25 to 30 minute or until heated through. Uncover and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with remaining scallions and serve.
