Use leftover corned beef or canned in this easy corned beef casserole. We used egg noodles in the casserole, but spaghetti or similar pasta could be used as well.
This makes a nice potluck dish, and it's an excellent way to use leftover corned beef.
For more color, add 1 to 2 cups of steamed peas or mixed vegetables to the sauce before baking. If you are using canned corned beef, chill it in the refrigerator. It's much easier to dice the corned beef into uniform pieces when it's chilled.
