Hamburger & Noodle Casserole

My mom would make this delicious noodle casserole when we were growing up. I have changed the noodles and the cheese, but have kept pretty much everything else the same. It is something I still love to eat and it is easy to make. I usually make it in a big casserole pot, but unfortunately that was in the fridge with leftovers from another meal. I decided to make this in my glass 9x13 pan and think it actually worked better. It was much easier for me to see the serving size which is great when you are trying to eat healthy. The casserole turned out to be higher points plus per serving than I was hoping for, but one serving does fill you up. It is a tasty and quick meal that I still enjoy even if it is a higher points plus value than some dishes. I hope you enjoy it too!
