Boring to say the least. Use marinara sauce instead of tomato soup, add some seasonings, mix in and sprinkle the top with a shredded cheese of your choice.

I used 4oz macaroni and 1 can tomato soup for my husband and I. It was very good. I have been making something very similar to this for years that we prefer.

This is a recipe that I have been trying to find. This is exactly how my mother used to make it and I really love it. Follow the no fail directions and you can't go wrong.
