Casserole Italiano

(Its hard to tell from this picture, but this dish is so yummy!)
We love this casserole in our house. It's total comfort food and its such an easy dish to throw together for those days that you don't have much time.

1 lb. Sausage (We like things a bit spicy in our house so we use hot sausage but you can use any flavor)
1 small onion (diced)
2-3 garlic cloves (minced)
2 cans tomato soup
1/2 tsp. Dried Oregano
1/4 cup water
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup cheese (shredded, we use what ever kind of cheese we have on hand usually cheddar or mozzerella)
Pinch of salt & pepper
Bread Crumbs for topping

Cook the meat in a large skillet on med. heat till no longer pink. Drain Fat.  Saute the onion and garlic for about 2-3 minutes.  Add the meat back to the skillet with the onions and garlic and turn the heat to low.  Stir in the soup, seasonings, and water and stir till well combined.  Now add in the cream cheese and stir till melted.  Remove from heat.  Stir in the shredded cheese and pour into a lightly greased casserole dish. Top with bread crumb and little shredded cheese. Bake @ *350 for 25-30 minutes. Serve with a green salad or veggie of choice.
*If your not sausage fans, you can sub out the sausage for hamburger meat or add no meat at all. Totally your preference. All of the above are good.
