Start by browning your hamburger. Drain the grease. Add onions, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Saute for about a minute.
Add uncooked noodles, chicken broth, Worcestershire sauce and water. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer for about 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When noodles are tender, add cheddar cheese and sour cream. Stir and let simmer for a couple of minutes, or until slightly thickened.
Top with parsley and serve.
