Ground Beef: 1 lb

Garlic Salt: 1 teaspoon

Marinara Sauce: 1 jar (24 oz)

Egg Noodles: 12 oz

For the Creamy Layer:

Sour Cream: 2 cups

Cream Cheese: 3 oz

White Onion: 1/2, chopped

Cheesy Topping:

Let’s Get Cooking:

Prep Your Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F to welcome the assembling casserole soon!

Noodle Time: In a pot of boiling, salted water, cook your egg noodles to al dente perfection, then drain and set them aside.

Beefy Base: Sauté ground beef over medium heat in a large skillet until browned. Introduce garlic salt and drain any excess fat if needed. Merge the marinara sauce, simmering for 10 minutes to mingle flavors.

Creamy Creation: In a separate bowl, unify sour cream, cream cheese, and onion, mixing to a creamy consistency.

Layering Love: In a 9x13-inch baking dish, create your layers starting with half the noodles, followed by the meaty mixture, a spread of your creamy concoction, and the remaining noodles.

Cheese Please: Crown your creation with a generous layer of grated cheddar cheese.

Bake & Enjoy: Let it bake for 25 minutes, and voilà – a delightful casserole that'll be cherished by all!

The Husband's Delight Casserole, while akin to the loved Martha’s Company Casserole, brings its unique charm with a hint of onion, excluding cottage cheese, and its own distinctive layering style. It still retains that cheesy, creamy, beefy, and noodle ensemble that has captured hearts for decades. This dish is not only a nod to classic comfort but a promise of a meal that’s warmly satisfying, today and always!
