  • 8 oz wide egg noodles, cooked to al dente
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated

  • Place the cooked noodles into a large bowl, stir in the cheese mixture, then the meat sauce.
  • Spray a shallow 1 1/2 to 2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray, then add the noodle bake ingredients. Top the casserole with grated cheese and place in the oven, 15 to 20 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve warm with crusty bread.
