We have made this recipe in our home for years. We had some relatives doing construction work here a number of years ago. It was starting to get late so I figured I should invite them to dinner. I needed something simple and quick. At a loss of what to have I decided on this simple Macaroni and Tomato recipe. When asked what we were having they looked at me kind of weird and said ok….
Later the one that looked at me kind of weird said “it’s amazing”. “What’s that” I said. “ That something simple can be so good.
I hope you Enjoy!

  1. My family always prepared something similar to this for family get togethers. My dad was one of ten kids so when the extended families got together you had to have a lot of food.
