Noodle Bake

I made this quick meal on Sunday night and I'm sure it will make great leftovers on Monday.

1 lb. ground beef

1 small onion, chopped

1 can whole kernel corn

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 cup sour cream

1 1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 tsp. pepper

1 small bag of your favorite pasta

cheddar cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions, then drain. Brown ground beef along with onion, drain. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Stir in pasta. Pour mixture into a casserole dish and cover with cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
