1/2 onion, chopped
1 lb. ground beef
spices: garlic powder, black pepper, cumin, coriander, oregano, basil, onion powder (I go by taste instead of measuring)
16 oz. tomato sauce
14 oz. canned diced tomatoes
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp. milk
4 oz. diced green chiles
Parmesan cheese, grated
Set aside the drained pasta.
Steam the cauliflower in a small pot for 3 minutes. Set aside.
Cook the beef and onion together until beef is browned. I added the spices at this stage, but left them out on the counter because I added more later.
|Cream Cheese layer|
In a separate bowl, mix the softened cream cheese and milk. Then add in the green chiles.
Spray a baking dish with the cooking spray. Spread a thin layer of the sauce on the bottom of the dish.
Spread the cream cheese mixture over the noodles.
Add the rest of the sauce, then top with the Parmesan cheese.
Bake 20-25 minutes.
