Sour Cream and Ground Beef Layered Casserole

Thank you for this recipe Kittencal. This is a good recipe. Instead of adding tomato sauce I added some extra jarred spaghetti sauce I had on hand, and left out the sugar. Also I used half of the sour cream and cream cheese, and that was actually plenty for me. This recipe reminds me of a spaghetti pie. It’s a great  freezer recipe and this recipe is easey to cut in half.  If you would like to have a recipe tried and featured please email me
