MUSHROOM AND CORN CREAMY VEG PASTA BAKE


You may think mushroom and corn is a weird combo, but trust me.

The earthiness of the mushrooms and the richness of the corn, combine well in a creamy cheese sauce to impart a very cheesy yet not overpowering flavor to the pasta.

Sprinkle on some sliced jalapenos for that extra spice kick!
