Listen everyone. This casserole was consumed entirely by my family. I have three little boys and a husband…and the 9×13 disappeared before my eyes! This is a good hefty hearty casserole that made my boys very happy. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed by this. This would be classified a Heavy S…and it uses a bunch of dairy. All the extras were very indulgent…and comforting. So if you’re craving comfort…this is it!

1 lb ground beef, cooked
Box of pasta cooked according to directions
¼ c. butter, cut into small pieces to place on the bottom of the 9×13 dish.
For the alfredo sauce:
1 lb cottage cheese
4 oz cream cheese
½ c. heavy cream
½ c. almond milk
¼ tsp glucomannan
1 tsp mineral salt
2 tsp dried garlic powder
1 ½ tsp Italian seasoning
½ tsp onion powder
5 tbsp parmesan cheese (green can)
Mozzarella and parmesan cheese to add to the top of the casserole.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cook the ground beef and noodles. (Use any preferred noodles…spaghetti squash, zoodles, Dreamfield’s pasta, or sautéed cabbage.)
Place all the sauce ingredients in a food processor. Process until smooth.
Cut up butter and put in dish.
Place noodles and beef in a 9×13 dish, and add the sauce. Mix all around until everything is incorporated together.
Top the mixture with mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of parmesan. (I didn’t include a measurement here…because you can decide how much cheesy topping you would like!)
Place the dish in the oven, and cook for 35-45 minutes…watching the last few minutes to make sure the cheese isn’t getting too brown. I pulled it out of the oven when the middle was bubbly.
This was delicious and filling. I wasn’t kidding when I said my boys devoured it. They went back for seconds and thirds, maybe fourths!
Let me know if you try it! I hope you like it.
