“This is a great comfort food recipe that I love to make on a cold winter day. It is also a hit at our church’s potluck dinners.”
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
1 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 cups frozen whole-kernel corn
1 (16 ounce) package penne pasta
1 1/2 cups shredded Colby-Jack cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and garlic in the hot skillet until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
Stir tomatoes, ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, salt, and pepper into ground beef mixture; reduce heat and simmer until heated through, about 10 minutes.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook corn in the boiling water until cooked through, about 5 minutes; drain.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain.
Mix corn, pasta, and Colby-Jack cheese into ground beef mixture; pour into a 9×13-inch baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.
