Triple Cheese Delight Casserole

This is my kind of comfort food. I grew up eating lots of casseroles when I was growing up, considering Goulash and this casserole immediately bring me back 20 years. I that old already? 20 years? yeeeesh.

I've heard many variations to the name, from Husband's Delight and my mom's recipe is called Double Cheese Delight. I really think it should be called Quadruple Cheese Delight, because there are technically four cheeses in it, but that's just the Type-A part of my brain coming out.

While making this casserole, I skipped the cottage cheese and sour cream and used more cream cheese (4 oz) to make up the difference. I couldn't tell a difference, and it was a lot cheaper buying only cream cheese and not the other two cheeses. But then it would technically be called Double Cheese Delight - you make this, and name it whatever you'd like - I won't tell!

I am also sharing this at What's Cooking Wednesday.
