Hamburger Spiral Noodle Casserole

Rossy is heading home from traveling all week, so figured I would give him a home cooked meal!  This was really yummy, but almost too cheesy.  I would either use a different kind of cheese (instead of the Velveeta), or use about 1/2 the amount.  Other than that - yummy!
Makes 8 servings: General Store Cookbook

1 1/2 lb hamburger
3 cups rotini macaroni noodles
2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 cup sour cream
3 oz cream cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded Velveeta cheese
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon sugar

In a large skillet, brown the hamburger, onion, garlic salt, pepper, and salt.  Pour off grease, add tomato sauce and sugar.  Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.  Stir periodically.

Add 3 quarts of water to a pan, and bring to a boil.  Add the noodles and cook for 5-7 minutes until soft; drain.

Blend in sour cream and cream cheese.  Add hamburger mixture and stir all together.  Put into 9x13 inch glass pan and top with shredded cheese.  Cover foil and bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes.  Remove cover the last 15 minutes to allow cheese to melt and lightly brown.
