Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly spray a large, deep casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Cook pasta according to package instructions.
  3. While pasta cooks, melt butter in large, heavy-bottomed skillet; add onions and saute for 5 minutes. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Add salt, tomatoes, chili seasoning, and Ragu® Old World Style® Traditional sauce. Stir to combine and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or until ready to add to pasta.
  4. Drain pasta and return to pot. Stir in corn and 1 1/2 cups of cheese; mix until evenly combined. Stir in the chili. Pour into the casserole dish and top with remaining cheese. Bake until hot and bubbling, about 15 minutes.
  5. Top with cilantro before serving.

Zesty Cheesy Chili Mac Haiku: "This makes SO much food. I froze half the meat-sauce 'guts', to make later on." I combined everything, other than the cooked pasta, and saw how much it was going to be (for only feeding 3 of us, at that!) so I quick divided the meat/corn/sauce (I did use Ragu's old world sauce), putting half in a freezer bag to use again another time. I thought this was pretty good, like a jazzed up Hamburger Helper; my daughter and husband weren't quite as wild about it, saying that they'd have rather eaten actual chili over noodles, rather than it all being mixey-uppey. Chances are, when I thaw the other portion I'll come up w/ something entirely different to do w/ it than prepare this recipe again, but I do have Ragu's recipe submitter to thank at least for giving me a jump-start on a 2nd meal!
