      We liked this more than I thought we would. It does make a lot. 8 oz of pasta makes a very saucy dish. With a pound of pasta you can freeze some to bake as a casserole later. I had to double the spices (except salt) for our family. I used 1% milk, reduced-fat cheddar, and reduced-fat cream cheese. I also cooked the beef with a small, chopped onion. Good comfort food.

      Although I slightly modified, this recipe is exactly what the title claims.
      It's a rich, yummy comfort food. I like it better than the boxed version-It's
      much less salty. I left out the cream cheese and it was still a very rich,
      creamy sauce. Like a previous reviewer, I used mozzerella cheese instead
      of cheddar. Also previously stated, 1/2 lb.pasta was well more than enough.
      As meat-lovers, I will probably use a bit more beef the next time. This was
      a great, quick, easy recipe!!!!
      time, even with the reduced pasta amount.

      I tweaked the recipe and it turned out great! Used 1/2 lb of pasta, ground turkey instead of beef and significantly reduced the amount of cheeses. Also put mozzarella instead of cheddar (that's all I had.) In addition to the corn I added some frozen peas and frozen broccoli. Yum!
