Friendship Casserole:

Have you ever had a Friendship Casserole? This is one of my favorite casseroles to make for my family and friends. If you’ve already tasted this casserole considered yourself blessed, if not, let me explain what it is.

The reason it is called Friendship Casserole is that this recipe makes two large casseroles. One for yourself and one to share with a friend!!! You can also double up on your casseroles and keep them both for yourself, just cook one and freeze the second casserole.

To make this awesome Friendship Casserole you need this ingredient:

Ingredients:

2 – lbs ground beef

1 – 48 oz jar spaghetti sauce

2 – tablespoons sugar

1 (16 oz) – pkg medium egg noodles

1/2 – cup margarine or butter

½ – teaspoon onion salt (or onion powder)

½ – teaspoon garlic salt (or garlic powder)

½ – cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 – 12 oz pkg shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350º Brown meat and drain fat. Add spaghetti sauce and sugar to the meat simmer for 20 minutes.

Cook noodles as directed (AL dente) drain and toss with margarine, salts, and Parmesan cheese. Spray two 9×13 pans with non-stick spray.

In both pans layer half the sauce, all the noodles, rest of the sauce top with mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil bake for 45 minutes.

You can also add some sauteed green bell peppers, onions and mushrooms to the sauce. Make sure the person you are gifting this wonderful casserole to likes the veggies. If not just leave them out.

Note: Since this recipe makes enough for two casseroles, plan one for your family and one for a friend.
