I love this recipe, one thing I found extremely time saving is that you can microwave this recipe in about 12 minutes with a 1200 watt microwave and it comes out perfect every time. Time saving and frees up your oven... Read More

With all the changes I made, my finished dish wasn't that much like the recipe, but it was so good I wanted to share. At first I baked it just like how it said, substituting a box of mac and cheese for the separate ingredients. But when it was finished I found it rather sweet, bland and unappetizing. So I added a can of chicken, a couple tablespoons chopped olives, 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, 3 tablespoons cream cheese, a lot of salt, a good amount of hot sauce, some italian seasoning, onion powder, and cumin. And parsley :o) My boyfriend and I both thought it was excellent and I loved how easy and not dirty dishes making it was, next time I'm going to try draining the corn and adding the same amount of milk as well as my other additions, and put a couple porkchops underneath so it will truly be a one dish meal! Thank you so much for this base recipe! Read More

I really liked this. I have made this twice now. Once following the recipe exactly and it was very good. Tonight I used pepper jack cheese instead and I loved it so much more. It was the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. Read More

I Love the fact that you don't have to cook the macaroni before mixing it. I used elbow macaroni, and made a double recipe. I used shredded cheese, because I did not have any Velveeta. I also found that using the full amount of butter made it very greasy.l Next time I made it with a few pats of butter and it was perfect. With those changes it is one of our favorite casseroles.

Very good my mom and I love this.I'm thinking of taking it to the family reunion next year. Also I found it was easier to just use a plain box of macaroni and cheese than buying the ingredients seperate. Read More

OMG good. I used the 8oz cans of corn & cut pasta in half. I used 1/2 cup of shredded cheese and halved again the butter (could have cut it further). I used a dash of hot sauce, not enough to make it hot, just enough to balance the sweet. I did 10 min in microwave covered, stirring halfway and 1 min uncovered. Read More

I have made this wonderful casserole 3 times in the last month and it has been a winner with everyone who has tasted it. My mother in law & my son in law, the chef, have both requested the recipe! What better review could you ask for? Read More

very easy to prepare and the results are fantastic. My wife and I both loved it and I plan on using it for a side dish at Thanksgiving. It sure beats my old corn recipe. Read More
