Poor Man Husband Casserole

by 247tasty

I’m pretty sure you all have heard about this recipe. This dish saved me through college! This is what I ate at least 3 times a week when I was still in school. It’s just really good and really easy to make. Egg noodles and ground beef? How awesome is that? and don’t forget about the cheese! Oh man, just the aroma of this dish, once you remove it from the oven, will give you that feeling that it’s gonna be amazing! You can add freshly chopped chilies as well. It gives a nice spicy twist to this casserole that I know some of you love! Try adding chopped spring onions too for additional flavor.

1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon honey
2 (8-ounce) cans tomato sauce
12 ounces egg noodles
8 ounces sour cream
