Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to the boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the macaroni, and return to the boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
Pour the macaroni into a saucepan and place over medium heat; stir in the butter, bacon fat, passata, chopped tomatoes with juice and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Stir while cooking until butter and bacon fat have melted and incorporated completely, 5 to 10 minutes; remove from heat, cover and allow to sit about 20 minutes before serving.
