What is your go to meal? The one that pleases even the pickiest eaters in your family? Our is definitely this dish! More than just a spaghetti bake, Noodle Heaven incorporates a cream cheesy layer in-between the noodles and sauce…which can only be described as…well…Heaven…..
This is also the meal that I always keep in the freezer for handy giving…to the friend who just had a baby or the church member returning from the hospital. The simplicity of the dish, paired with the overall yumminess, will make it your family favorite as well!
