Lasagna lovers, take note. Here’s an easy Italian bake that goes together in a snap!

Ingredients

1 1/2
pounds lean ground beef
1
jar (26 ounces) tomato pasta sauce (any variety)
1
package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/3
cup sour cream
2
cups shredded Parmesan cheese
3/4
teaspoon Italian seasoning
2
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
1 1/2
cups milk

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches, with cooking spray. Cook beef in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Stir in pasta sauce.
  • 2 Mix cream cheese, sour cream, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese and 1/4 teaspoon of the Italian seasoning in small bowl until smooth and creamy.
  • 3 Spoon half of the beef mixture (about 2 cups) into baking dish. Drop spoonfuls of cream cheese mixture evenly onto beef mixture. Spoon remaining beef mixture over cream cheese mixture.
  • 4 Stir 1 cup of the Parmesan cheese, the Bisquick mix and milk in medium bowl until blended. Pour over beef mixture.
  • 5 Bake uncovered 30 to 35 minutes or until light golden brown. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Bake 5 minutes longer. Let stand at least 10 minutes before cutting.
Tips  

Ground turkey also works well in this hot and hearty casserole.

You can now purchase precooked seasoned beef in a variety of flavors. If you want to save time, look for Italian-seasoned precooked ground beef and use enough to equal 1 1/2 pounds. No cooking, no cleanup--just mix with the pasta sauce and assemble the casserole.
