Quick Lasagna Casserole

This recipe can be made in about 30 minutes, and my children appreciate it as much as the real thing.  I put this in a casserole dish that will fit in my microwave.  You can use sausage or beef in this, or both.  You can also use any pasta or cheese you like.

Quick Lasagna Casserole
1 lb. ground beef or sausage, browned
1 large can (26 oz.) spaghetti sauce
1 lb. lasagna noodles, broken up (or other pasta)
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. sour cream
1/4 c. milk
1/8 tsp. garlic salt
1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

Boil pasta until tender.  Stir spaghetti sauce into browned meat and warm while pasta cooks.  Stir together, in a small bowl, cream cheese and milk until smooth, add sour cream and garlic salt and mix.  When pasta is ready, spread a bit of spaghetti sauce into the bottom of a 2 qt. casserole dish. Layer 1/3 of the noodles, 1/3 of meat sauce then 1/3 of the white sauce, repeat layers twice.  Top the last layer of white sauce with cheese.  Microwave on high for 8 minutes, or until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbling.  Serve with French bread and a salad.  Serves 4-6

Notes:  I have a few noodles left over from my layers when I use a whole box of lasagna noodles.  So, if you want to start with less, you can.  You can use cottage cheese in place of the cream cheese/sour cream sauce.  You might like to still add the milk to thin it a bit.
