Hamburger Beef Bake

1 lb hamburger meat
1 large jar Prego Traditional Spaghetti sauce
3/4-1 cup of small elbow macaroni noodles
1/3 cup sweet yellow onion(diced)
1 bundle of green onions
1 8 oz. package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese(softened)
Kraft 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese(will be sprinkled on top)

Dice onions in skillet, brown hamburger meat with onions, drain grease once meat is cooked. While browning meat, boil macaroni noodles until tender, just as if you were using them for Spaghetti. Combine Prego, hamburger meat & onions in large sauce pan. Add the noodles once they are done to the sauce pan(you may not use all the noodles, you want to have a even amount of your meat sauce & noodles). Put the combination into a casserole dish, I use a Corningware 2 1/2 qt. Dice green onions small & combine with cream cheese(I often put the cream cheese in a microwavable bowl and heat for 1 minute to make it easier to mix) Spread evenly on top of your meat sauce & noodle combination & then sprinkle the parmesan cheese evenly as well. Depending on how fast you would like it to be done it can be baked in the oven between 350-400 degrees until the cream cheese starts to turn a little brown.

I usually bake some texas toast with it that you can get in the freezer section! 

P.S. I sometimes use a little over 1 lb. of hamburger meat(we're meat lovers. lol.) I also purchase a small jar of traditional sauce as well just to make sure so its not to dry. This is a very easy and reasonably cheap dish to make and anyone who has ever tried it, has absolutely loved it! 

I think this is it! lol. If you have any questions, just let me know! You can't mess this up, so don't worry! :) Good luck & let me know what you think! :)
