Garlic powder to taste
½ cup chopped green pepper
½ cup chopped onion
Large jar pasta sauce

Cook pasta as directed on package. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium pan sauté the onion and green pepper till translucent. Remove from pan. Add ground beef with seasonings to pan and cook till done. Drain, add onions and green peppers back into pan, add pasta sauce. Simmer for 20 minutes.

In small bowl combine sour cream, cream cheese and ricotta, set aside.

Mix drained noodles with butter and Parmesan cheese. Coat a 9x13” inch pan with pam. Place prepared noodles in pan, spread cheese mixture on top of noodles and cover with meat mixture. Sprinkle with cheddar/mozz cheese.

Cover and bake for 25 minutes until bubbly. Uncover and bake for 5 more minutes till cheese is bubbly.

Also very yummy with no meat or veggies… just noodles sauce and cheese mixture.
