Chili Casserole?

This "recipe" is something I threw together last night because I didn't want to go get groceries. Besides, it's still "No Spend March" so I thought that was a good excuse.

Chili Casserole
disclaimer - this is not really a recipe, you just make it up as you go

1 (12 oz) bag macaroni - cooked
1/2 jar of spaghetti sauce (leftover from the other night)
1/2 can tomato sauce
1 lb hamburger, browned
dried minced onion
garlic powder
crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup cheese

Mix together the ground beef, spaghetti sauce and tomato sauce until bubbling. Add chili, onion, cumin, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper (all to taste). Mix sauce with the cooked macaroni and stir in the frozen corn. Pour into a greased casserole and top with cheese. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

That's it. It was really yummy and really easy. You have to just taste the sauce as you go. You could even add a little cinnamon to give it a different flavor. Basically, I just used up some of the leftovers out of the fridge and it turned out to be yummy.
