Default Does the carb count look right on this?

I am going through my bookmarks and removing old stuff. I never did make
this recipe and I can't make it for myself now seeing as how I can't have
cheese or tuna but... 10 grams of carb per serving? That just looks wrong.
Straight out, 1 cup of corn and 3 cups of mashed potatoes would be 4 cups of
carbs with 1/2 a cup being a serving or 15 grams. Since there are 4
servings and presumably a serving would be a cup, that would be 30 grams
right there. No? And then there's the cheese sauce. That is supposed to
be thick so more carbs right there. No? Am I missing something? Here is
the recipe:

In case you don't want to click the link, here are the ingredients:

3 cups cheese (thick, sauce)
425 grams tuna (water)
1 cup corn (kernel)
3 cups mashed potatoes
12 cup cheese (grated)
salt
pepper
1 tbsp chives (chopped)

Cheese sauce to me is flour, milk and cheese with seasonings. Even
without the cheese sauce the carb count of the corn and mashed potato is
way off.
