1
can (11 ounces) Green Giant® SteamCrisp® Niblets® vacuum-packed whole kernel corn, undrained

  1. Mix broth, pasta, corn and chilies in 2-quart saucepan. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until pasta is just tender; remove from heat. Let stand about 5 minutes or until almost all liquid is absorbed.
