Savory Beef Casserole

I Love Love Love this dish. I haven't made it for years because it's not my husbands favorite ( he's not a big cream cheese, sour cream person) but everyone else in the family likes it. Tonight because there is just two of us at home I made it in two 8x8 pans instead of one 9x13 and froze one of them.
Here is a couple of notes on this recipe:
I HATE onions but this recipe is made by the flavor of the green onions. don't substitute a regular onion for the green onions it won't be nearly as delightful, I use ground turkey instead of beef and it is just as good, cut the green onions and green peppers up super small. The cheese with the onions and green peppers mingled with the noodles, turkey and sauce and it is absolutely delightful. Here we go enjoy girls!

Savory Beef Casserole
