Tomato-Cheese Macaroni Recipe

We were having fish for dinner so I decided on this Tomato-Cheese Macaroni Recipe for a side dish to go along with it. This is a very simple recipe that has a really good blend of flavors. It is mildly seasoned so there is a lot of room to add some additional seasoning. I think adding some basil, oregano, or some type of Italian seasoning blend mixture would add a lot to the dish. You could even brown some burger and add it in; turning this recipe into a one dish meal. However if you want to keep it simple the recipe is very good as is. If you’re like me, and are always looking for a good side dish, give this Tomato-Cheese Macaroni Recipe a try. Enjoy
