How to Make Italian Corn Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook the pasta al dente (‘till you can cut it with a fork; usually about 8 minutes). While you wait for water to boil and pasta to cook, begin cooking the meat/s.
  2. Cook meat/s, adding splash of red wine vinegar and drain when cooked. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, add 2 Tbs. of olive oil and 2 Tbs. of butter. Heat until butter is melted and well combined. Add chopped onion and garlic. cook until almost translucent. Add wine. Cook until onions and garlic are translucent and tender. Next add seasonings one at a time; rubbing in the palm of your hand to crush well before adding. When completely cooked, stir into the meat.
  4. When pasta is cooked, drain thoroughly. Pour meat mixture, cheeses, pasta sauce, drained canned corn and add brown sugar. Stir well, mixing thoroughly over medium heat to heat well throughout.
  5. Serve hot with a green salad or side of zucchini and garlic toast.
