Reviews for Corn 'n' Beef Pasta Bake
"We picked this recipe because it was such an interesting combination of ingredients. The flavors came together well, and was just as good reheated the next day. We upped the amount of chili powder for added pizzazz. Cajun seasoning would be a good alternative too."
