We try to have something different every Sunday and this past week we suddenly realised that we had not had Cheesy Spinach Corn Casserole in ages. This is  a recipe I learnt from my mother when I started to bake and I guess it was the first savoury baked dish I learnt. This is also the dish with which I learnt to make a Bechamel Sauce.

Now that my mother is no more with us, this Cheesy Spinach Corn Casserole becomes especially dear to me. My endeavour (conscious or otherwise) is to get the taste as close to as what Amma made.

I simply love this casserole. Its easy to make, and combines the goodness of spinach, corn, and cheese; not to forget delicious.
