Hamburger Noodle Casserole



My kids and I love this creamy hamburger noodle casserole. It tastes like lasagna in a casserole but with a few different ingredients. I usually prepare this the night before and leave it in the fridge. It also is a great kid friendly recipe to take to a potluck dinner or when company comes over.
