|Cheesy Italian Beef Bake|
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 jar chunky garden style tomato pasta sauce
1 package cream cheese - softened
1/3 cup sour cream
2 cups original Bisquick mix
1 1/2 cups milk
2 cups shredded Parmesan cheese
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat oven to 375 F.
Brown the ground beef in a skillet then drain. Return the ground beef to the skillet and stir in the pasta sauce.
Mix the sour cream, cream cheese, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese and 1/2 tsp of the Italian seasoning in a bowl until smooth and creamy. Pour half of the beef mixture into a greased, 9 X 13 baking dish. Then spread an even layer of the cheese mixture onto the beef and add the remaining ground beef.
Stir 1 cup of the Parmesan cheese, the Bisquick mix and milk in a bowl until well blended. Pour over the final layer of ground beef.
Bake uncovered at 350 F for approx. 30 minutes or until the Bisquick is a light golden brown. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning and salt/pepper to taste. Bake an additional 5 minutes. Enjoy!
