I do it twice in one week. that gives me liberty to rate it twice you think? Even more so because my two-year old and I ate the rest of the leftovers and my husband pouted!! So I had to make another batch of this yummy dish. I measured my spices this go-round. and used between 1/2 and 3/4 of a teaspoon of the basil and oregano the full teaspoon of the Italian seasoning and it couldn't have been better. More fetta less parm. And used two small fresh tomatoes again and layered them in between the macaroni and the layer of cheese on top. I found the first go round that if I mixed the tomatoes in the macaroni wasn't as gooey/cheesy; it tended to seperate. so the layering worked PERFECT. Try it! You Won't Be Disappointed. Read More

I made this and with a few changes it was awesome. I omitted tomatoes and added 1 tin of tomato paste. I just used basil salt pepper and nutmeg for seasonings. I added 1.5 cups mozerella 1.5 of cheddar and 1/2 of parmesian. Kids gobbled it up. Thanks Read More

I know this may sound weird but I've never been a fan of rich/super creamy macaroni and cheese. This recipe is exactly what I had been looking for! I made it for my boyfriend and we both thought it was great. I can understand how some people may find it a bit dry but that's a big part of why I enjoyed it so much. I'll definitely be making this on a regular basis. Read More

Excellent dish! I made the following changes: used only one 14.5 oz can of tomatoes and didn't use italian seasoning (just oregano and basil). I also didn't put the tomatoes in a separate bowl first as the recipe called for...I just added them into the casserole dish and mixed in after the first batch of cheeses. A great twist on regular mac-n-cheese! Read More

Absolutely amazing a true keeper! THe first time I made this my husband had 4 servings no kidding! I do add more cheese & seasonings based on our personal preference & layered the pasta & the tomato mixture as other reviews did. It makes great leftovers too! My husband & I can't get enough of this dish! Thanks for this one! Read More

Pretty tasty recipe. My pre-teens gobbled this down. A bit reminiscent of Macaroni Grill with the addition of tomatoes and Italian spices. I'll be making this one again. Read More
