*Ok, so I made this the other night and I was only so-so with it. It's basically a glorified hamburger helper. The noodle mixture was a little creamy so I added more cooked noodles (the recipe calls for half of a bag, but I ended up cooking most of the bag.) Matt, on the other hand, in an unprecedented event with him, at this meal as LEFTOVERS!! gasp!!!
This is another recipe out of the church cookbook that Matt’s mom got me. I saw the name and was intrigued and so that’s the main reason why I want to make this meal! Not sure how it will turn out, but you can’t go wrong with the ingredients that are in it!

6 green onions, chopped with tops
1 (3 oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly at 350.
