1 pound of hamburger, browned
3 cups of homemade spaghetti style sauce
1 box of rice noodles or 6-8 wide lasagna noodles, cooked according to package
1 small can of sliced black olives, drained
1.5 cups of gruyere, grated
1 small wedge of triple cream cheese (similar to Brie), sliced with mold removed
1.5 cups of fontina cheese
NOTE: If using Velveeta, use enough cheese, sliced in thin slices, to cover two layers.
Have your meat browned, cheese grated or sliced and noodles cooked.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a bowl add sauce to meat and stir. You don't want you sauce to be too runny.
In a rectangular baking dish (9X13) start layering ingredients.
I did meat on the bottom, olives sprinkled, cheese, noodles and repeat. I topped my dish with a final sprinkle of cheese. I also mixed the cheese's up on each layer (this is your choice).
Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.
Let rest for 10 minutes once removed from oven.
