Soldier’s Delight

Before Heather and I were married I would come over to apartment and cook dinner for her and her roommates. This is one of the dishes I found in a random cookbook that was on the shelf in their kitchen. The recipe called it Husband’s Delight, but I have changed the name and a couple of ingredients in order to make it better for us. This is now my go to recipe for Meal Trains after families have babies. It is wonderful and one of those dishes that only gets better then next day.


12 oz. Egg Noodles (Whole Wheat)

1 TBSP Olive Oil

1 – 1 ½ lbs ground beef

15 oz can Tomato Sauce

3 Cloves of Garlic

1 TBSP Sugar

Salt and Pepper to taste

8 oz Cream Cheese (softened)

8 oz Sour Cream

5 Green Onions sliced into small rings

8 oz Cheddar Cheese



  1. Boil Noodles according to package directions. Once cooked, drain and set inside a 9 x13 casserole dish.
