Cheesy Corn Casserole Recipe

So, this is perhaps THE most favorite dish in our house right now. And I'm about to share this super easy recipe with you today. For Cheesy Corn Casserole!


I love mac n' cheese and corn, so when you mix the two together, it's pretty much awesome in my book. I make Trent cook this all the time. :)


I've seen a ton of variations online, but Trent likes to experiment with his own, so this is his version. The below recipe makes enough for a small family meal (both of us had enough for 2 helpings plus a little extra). For a bigger group, I would double this.

Ingredients:
1 can cream corn
1 can whole kernel corn
1 cup pasta (rotini or elbow macaroni)
1/2 lb Velveeta cheese
Handful shredded cheddar cheese
Optional: garlic and onion for garnish


Directions:

  1. Add cans of cream and whole kernel corn together in a casserole dish, and mix in a cup of pasta. 
  2. Add small blocks of Velveeta cheese, spreading evenly around dish.
  3. Blend all ingredients together.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour, covered.
  5. Take out and spread a layer of shredded cheddar cheese and garnish on top.
  6. Bake for another 1/2 hour, uncovered, at same temp.


A couple of notes:

  • A lot of variations I've seen use butter in this, too, but we like it just fine without it. 
  • We've used elbow macaroni in the past, but last time we used rotini (the spiral noodles), and found it to be just as good!


Hope you enjoy!
