Came up with this when I was craving a cheesy baked spaghetti. You can make this many different ways with any veggies/protein you want. I love this so much because it is so easy, economical and makes for AWESOME leftovers!

I grow a little weary of the black bean and corn combo that is so prevalent in these recipes - however, this was still good. If I make it again I will probably add some breadcrumbs on top.

- 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 cup corn (fresh, frozen, canned)
