Cheesy Comforting Burger-style Macaroni

What you need: 

1 small package elbow noodles
1 package burger-style crumbles
1 diced green pepper
1 diced onion
1 package Follow Your Heart Cheddar Uncheese
1 container Better Than Cream Cheese (plain flavor)
vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
1 small can tomato sauce

What you do: 

Every week I go to dinner to my non-vegetarian mothers for family dinner. She makes the best vegan casseroles and I feel like I'm the luckiest daughter alive! This is what she made this week:
1. Cook elbow noodles, drain.
2. Meanwhile, sauté green pepper, onion and ground meatless till done.
3. Add sautéed veggie/soy crumble mixture, 1/2 (or more) container cream cheese, and can of tomato sauce to noodles.
4. Add a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce (I added more afterwards, too, because I liked it so much)
5. Add salt to taste and then spread in 9x11 baking dish.
6. Cover dish with tin foil and bake for about 20 minutes at 425 degrees.
7. Take out of oven and top with sliced Follow Your Heart cheese.
8. Continue baking until cheese is melted and oozy.
9. Eat and enjoy! I'm finishing my leftovers now and just added some A1 steak sauce (which my son is obsessed with!)

This was very good.  But, I am curious, for lack of details.  What sizes packages of burger crumbles, Follow your heart cheese, and Better than cream cheese did you use?  I have seen different packaging.  Is a small can of tomato sauce 8 ounces?  Also, did anyone have to add water to this?  It seemed a little dry to me.  So we made it creamier, and liked the consistency better.  Thank you for the feedback.


I used 16 oz of macaroni, and it was great, and makes a ton! 


Sorry, just saw the questions! I use an 8oz box of elbow macaroni.


what size elbow noodles package??? is it one full pound of macaroni?


How much pasta should be used? (About a pound?)


I have made this 2 times now and it is really tasty.  the first time I used elbow macaronni and the second I used whole wheat rotinni and and i like the rotinni better but good both ways.
