I am a lazy mom. I don't like to spend hours in the kitchen. When my kids demand food, I usually try to make the easiest dishes.
This one probably takes about 40-50 minutes, and the preparation is less than 10 minutes.
Casseroles are hearty and easy to make. True, you need an oven (you can also use a steamer, though) but you can make them in oh-so-many ways. That way, your family (in my case, kids) will marvel at how creative I am, how diverse my repertoire is. (Ha ha!)
Pasta and Corned Beef Casserole
for a casserole dish, for four people (maybe more, if you are not that greedy)
- 1 cup of pasta (I used fusilli), boiled according to your liking (some like 'em al dente, but if you like 'em softer, it's up to you), strained using a colander
- 2 eggs
- 1 can of corned beef (I used 250 grams)
- 50 gr of grated mozzarella
- Butter / spray cooking oil for the casserole dish
Coat the casserole dish with butter / spray cooking oil evenly. Pour the boiled pasta and spread evenly on the dish. Break the eggs and mix them with corned beef. Pour it on the pasta. Top it with grated mozzarella. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
That's it! That easy, huh? You can use another pasta, add grated vegetables, use minced meat, add some mashed potatoes, or use tofu instead of meat.
