  1. To make the sauce: In a stockpot, combine the tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, onions, peppers, garlic, parsley, seasoning mixtures, sugar and bay leaves.

  5. Add the ground beef to the stockpot.
  6. Simmer for another 20 minutes.
  7. While the sauce simmers, cook the pasta according to the package directions.

  14. Pinch off small pieces of cream cheese and dot over the other cheeses.
  15. Add another layer of sauce.
  16. Repeat layering 2 to 3 times, ending with sauce.
  17. This may be covered and refrigerated at this point.
