Husband's Delight Casserole is my absolute all-time favorite meal. If I knew I had one meal left on earth to eat, this would be it! As far back as I can remember, I requested this casserole from my mom on every birthday. When I make this casserole, I often double the recipe and put one in the freezer for later. It freezes beautifully. Here's the recipe:

Husband's Delight Casserole

1 small onion, chopped
1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1 garlic clove, minced
1 t. salt
Pepper to taste
1 t. sugar
2 cans tomato sauce
12 oz. package egg noodles
8 oz. sour cream (I use more)
8 oz. cream cheese
Grated cheddar cheese

Brown onions and ground beef. Add next 5 ingredients. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Cook and drain noodles. Combine cream cheese and sour cream. Grease a 3 qt. baking dish. Put in a layer of noodles (1/3), cheese mixture (1/3) and meat (1/3). Repeat 2 times. Top with grated cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. This can be frozen for later, but don’t add grated cheese until ready to bake.
