Homemade Hamburger Helper

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 onion, diced
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon thyme
about 1 teaspoon salt-season to taste
pepper to taste
8 oz. whole grain elbow noodles
2 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups water
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 Tablespoons sour cream
1 Tablespoon parsley

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.
