Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a casserole dish and set aside.
Cook sausage meat according to package instructions and set aside.
In a medium-size sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes, or until onions are translucent. Add flour and cook for additional 3-4 minutes, whisking regularly. Add milk and increase temperature to medium-high heat. Stir continuously as sauce comes to a boil. Add dry italian dressing mix and cream cheese. Keep stirring until evenly mixed. Set aside.
Create even layers in casserole dish starting with half the sliced potatoes, followed by half the sausage, then half the sauce and lastly with half the cheddar cheese. Repeat layers with remaining half of ingredients. Top with chopped green onion.
Bake in oven, while covered with tinfoil, for 50-80 minutes, checking at the 50 minute mark to test if potatoes are cooked. Once potatoes are cooked, place back in over uncovered for another 8-10 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes and serve.
