Directions

  • 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.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert 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.
