Cheeseburger Noodle Casserole

I found this recipe on the WW community board and thought it sounded good. My husband is a huge cheeseburger fan and I am a big pasta lover, so I figured why not try the best of both worlds. Man, I am glad I did. It was awesome and my husband loved it! I think the onion dip mix provided a ton of flavor. This one is definitely a repeat. :)

Did you use regular cheese or low fat? Looking forward to making this.

I'm trying this tonight. If you use low-fat cheese it's a point less per serving.

What sort of noodles did you use?

I combined this recipe plus another to make my own version of a skillet BACON cheeseburger casserole. Instead of sour cream (we don't like it) I made a white sauce and added the shredded cheese to make a cheese sauce. My toddler son liked it, so that's a stamp of approval. :)

When you say 8 oz of pasta, is it dry or cooked?
