Hambuger Noodle Casserole

I am always on the look out for new healthy, low fat recipes. So when I saw the Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook at the grocery store, I had to get it. There are so many yummy looking recipes. It also has a photo of every recipe, which I like when finding new recipes. I like to know if my results are anywhere near what it is supposed to look like. Tonight was my first time to try one of these new meals. It turned out great! My husband loved it and even went back for seconds! It was very tasty and filling. The recipe reminds me of a taco casserole recipe I have read on several other blogs.

1-1/4 lbs lean ground beef
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cans (8 oz each) tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 package (8 oz) reduced fat cream cheese
1 cup reduced-fat ricotta cheese
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
3 green onions, thinly sliced, divided
2/3 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
Cook noddles according to package directions. Meanwhile in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook beef and garlic until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, sugar, salt and pepper; heat through. Drain noodles; stir into beef mixture.
In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, ricotta cheese and sour cream until blended. Stir in half of the onions.
