This is a simple and inexpensive version of an old dish just like gran used to bake. I combine macaroni, mature Cheddar cheese and chopped tomatoes with other herbs and spices for a delicious old-fashioned favourite.
Made this for dinner last night and my husband and I loved it. I appreciate that Allrecipes has a calculate button as I used it on this recipe to take the 12 servings down to 6. I wanted some leftovers for lunches but didn't need 12 serving leftovers! The 2 changes I made (because it is what I had on hand) was my diced tomatoes had jalapenos in them and my cream cheese had chives in it. I think the jalapenos added a nice kick to the recipe, but it didn't make it too spicy. I froze a container for our college son. This would be a great recipe to take to a large gathering as even half a recipe took the 3 qt. baking dish to bake. Will be making this one again. Thanks for sharing the recipe. - 13 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This a a good recipe, just not the macaroni and cheese flavor I was looking for. - 02 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love this recipe and have made it so many times I've lost track. I now add some ricotta cheese to give it a bit more creaminess, but not too much. Delish! - 11 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
