The original recipe calls this Company Casserole because it “has things commonly found in your kitchen” so you can whip this up when company comes over. Sadly, I don’t commonly have all these ingredients in my kitchen, and I added a few more, so company casserole isn’t fitting. But, I couldn’t think of anything else to call it. I’m not very creative when it comes to dish names. Poor Man’s Lasagna has been suggested or Italian Casserole of the Thousand Calories, but I think I’ll try to figure something else out.

  13. 2 Tablespoons Italian Seasoning

  7. Spread tomato sauce evenly over the top of hamburger and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  8. Cook for 30 minutes, add mozzarella cheese and cook 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cook slightly longer if you like your cheese nice and brown.
  9. Let sit for 10-15 minutes to allow noodles to absorb excess liquid.
