Grandma and Grandpa have been married for fifty years now–it’s truly the sweetest thing! When we asked Grandma what the secret to the long-lasting love was, she giggled and said keeping his belly full of his favorite casserole. She eventually named that dish Husband’s Delight Casserole because it made him and his tastebuds so thrilled! And understandably so; the bouncy egg noodles covered in tangy, meaty red sauce and a smooth, rich sour cream mixture sound like it’d make just about anyone happy. Topped with bubbly, melted cheese, Grandma and Grandpa vow that Husband’s Delight Casserole will be delicious from this day forward!
