1cuphalf and halfyou can use milk or cream if that is what you have
4ozsmoked goudayou could use regular gouda too
Put on a large pot of water and cook the noodles per package instructions to al dente. Make sure to salt the water
In a frying pan heat the vegetable oil and then brown the ground lamb (or hamburger) over medium heat until cooked through. Add the onion and garlic powder and the salt and pepper while browning and stir well. Remove from heat and set aside until the noodles and the sauce are finished.
In a medium sauce pan, over medium heat combine the butter, cream cheese, parmesan, half and half and smoked gouda. Stir frequently until all is melted and heated through.
When noodles are cooked, drain well. Add the lamb (or hamburger) and the sauce to the noodles and stir well. You can spread this into a 9x13 casserole dish, sprinkle with bread crumbs and heat under broil until the top is crusty – or simply serve as is.
If you don't have lamburger, you can just use ground beef or even sausage and this dish will still be perfect!
