1 1/2 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cans (8-ounces) tomato sauce
1 cup sour cream
3 ounces cream cheese-cubed
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
6 cups cooked noodles - more of less, if you like
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, or cheese of choice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish

In a skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is no longer pink; drain. Remove from heat; stir in tomato sauce, sour cream, cream cheese, sugar, garlic powder, and salt and pepper; mix until blended.

Place half of the noodles in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish; top with half of the beef mixture. Repeat layers.

Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
