This is just what you want when tired and hungry. Great comfort food. I scaled it in half and also used creamed corn (all i had). Yummy. Reviewed for 123 tag in games forum
Talk about comfort food. This was great. Cook time was perfect. I used a large oven proof skillet and only dirtied one dish. I also used reg sharp cheddar. Will definately make this again.
This was quite tasty and it was a good change of pace. As I only have frozen corn and the previous reviewer had too much liquid I didn't add any extra. As it turned out I added some beef broth when the noodles started soaking up the liquid. I had to use Cheddar as I can't get the pepper Jack at the local market but it all came together very nicely and made a good and warming dinner. I served it with a green salad and Red Chili Biscuits.
