CHEAP meal

Not the best-looking meal but so yummy and pretty cheap! I take 2 Knorr sides-chicken flavor, 1 pound of ground beef, about a cup of shredded cheddar cheese, and a can of corn. I cook the noodles, cook the ground beef and season it to my liking, then I add the cooked ground beef to the noodles. I drain the corn and add it. Then I melt in the shredded cheese. So yummy!

Cheesy Beef and Corn Pasta


  • 2 packs of Knorr chicken-flavored pasta sides
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can of corn, drained
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional seasonings: garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, or your favorite spices


  1. Prepare the Pasta Sides:
    • Follow the instructions on the Knorr pasta side packages to cook the noodles. Typically, you’ll need to bring water to a boil, add the pasta, and simmer until the noodles are tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Cook the Ground Beef:
    • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat (if using).
    • Add the ground beef and cook, breaking it apart with a spoon, until it’s browned and cooked through. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Season the Beef:
    • Season the cooked beef with salt, pepper, and any optional seasonings you like. You can use garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, or any other favorite spices to enhance the flavor.
  4. Combine Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked pasta, seasoned ground beef, drained corn, and shredded cheddar cheese.
  5. Melt the Cheese:
    • Gently fold the ingredients together until everything is evenly mixed.
    • Return the mixture to the skillet and cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the cheese is fully melted, and the dish is heated through. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once the cheese is melted and the dish is hot, you’re ready to serve!
    • You can garnish with extra shredded cheese or fresh herbs if desired.

This dish may not win any beauty contests, but it’s sure to be a hit with its delicious combination of cheesy pasta, seasoned beef, and sweet corn. It’s also budget-friendly and quick to make, making it a perfect choice for a satisfying meal. Enjoy!
