A family favorite--in fact my teenage daughter's girlfriend always finagles a visit when I plan to make this for dinner. Goes great with a salad and homemade bread! Enjoy!

I added spices to the tomato sauce--oregano dried onion garlic basil and pepper. I also used shredded mozzarella cheese. Very simple but very delicious. Read More

Instead of using the sprinked cheese I used american cheese slices. My husband loves the edges of crusted mac and cheese! Also...this was done in about 14 minutes. Read More

I made this tonight and was worried about the taste of the tomato sauce with the cheese; I cut it down to one of the small cans of tomato sauce instead. It was delicious! Just a hint of tomato in the background. However because I also added ground beef onions and mushrooms I had to add a little milk to make up for the lack of tomato sauce. Excellent especially with whole grain pasta. Read More

Easy recipe. Instead of seashell pasta I used macaroni - how can it be macaroni and cheese without macaroni? And used cheddar cheese not the processed stuff. Really quick and easy but next time will double the sauce and I'll cook the pasta the full time before mixing with the sauce. I topped the dish with seasoned bread crumbs. I halved the recipe which was sufficient for two people with a side of something. I'll give this another go soon with the above considerations. I appreciate the recipe. Read More
