|Corned Beef Baked Macaroni|
My kid loves corned beef and the usual sweet taste of spaghetti sauce. Today I baked macaroni with her favorite corned beef. She's not fond of too much cheese, else I should have added cream cheese. But this baked dish turned out well coz she liked it and finished four servings :)
