Lucy's Mac and Corn

Lucy's Mac and Corn


"This recipe came from my high school cafeteria's cook, Lucy. It's my favorite school lunch dish! (Casey's mom has found that 1/2 stick of margarine and reduced-fat Velveeta results in an equal taste with less fat.)"

With just a few changes this recipe is awesome! DEFINITELY cook the pasta first, then add butter and cheese. Stir to allow some melting. Then add the corns. This cut the cooking time to 15 minut...

This is a very good recipe for a group of kids. You DO NOT need to cook the macaroni first, as others have said. The trick is DO NOT DRAIN the corn. Dump everything together and cook for th...

As is, I give this a four. If you cook the pasta beforehand, and melt the butter and cheese together, and then mix everything and bake for about 40 minutes, it is a five. Delicious.
