Italian Night

This casserole was so easy to make and taste wonderful. Everyone went back for seconds.

Beef Lombardi
1-lb. ground beef
1 (14-oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (10-oz) can diced tomatoes with chilies
1 (6-oz) can tomato paste
2 tsp. sugar
salt & pepper to taste
6-oz. wide egg noodles
1 c. sour cream
1 c. grated cheddar cheese
1 c. grated mozzarella cheese
1 c. grated Parmesan cheese

In a medium size skillet, brown meat until no longer pink. Drain fat. Return meat to skillet, then add in tomato products, sugar, salt & pepper.

Bring to a bubble for 5 minutes. Cover & lower heat to simmer for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare noodles according to package directions. Once cooked, drain and pour into a 9x13" casserole dish. Stir sour cream into hot noodles.

Pour meat mixture over noodles & sour cream. Spread evenly. Top with cheeses.

Place a cover of aluminum foil over casserole and bake in a 350* oven for 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
