Husband's Delight **

Okay, I'll admit it. I picked this one almost solely for its name, lol. I wanted to make something dh would enjoy, and it looked like a good pick. I did like it (as did he), but it's just not quite right. The cream cheese/sour cream/cottage cheese layer didn't melt enough. I think it would have been better with less of that cheese layer or maybe with it mixed into the noodles more. I'm thinking I may try cutting out the cream cheese and adding some parmesan cheese in its place. There are possibilities. I'm not giving up on it yet. :) Oh, and I used all low fat stuff and replaced the ground beef with ground turkey.
