Budget Corn Casserole

"Besides helping on our farm, I work as an environmental assistant for a power district," relates Denise Goedeken from Platte Center, Nebraska. "It's quite a challenge to put a good nutritious meal on the table and still have time for doing things with my family." Denise's husband and their two girls enjoy this dish, which you can make for just 20¢ a serving.

    I received a very similar recipe from my mother-in-law in Broken Bow, Nebraska many years ago. The only difference is hers called for small can evaporated milk and a small onion. One of the most requested at family holiday dinners. Addicting!!

    You can substitute spaghetti for the elbow macaroni and if you have grandkids it is fun to use the colored macaroni---make sure you enough made because it goes fast!
