"This is my Dad's recipe and is always a hit at parties. It is a great accompaniment to stuffed green peppers. Use the plain stewed tomatoes for the best taste." — Renee

1 (11 ounce) can
condensed cream of Cheddar cheese soup
1 1/2 cups
extra sharp white Cheddar cheese, shredded, divided
1 (14.5 ounce) can
dry bread crumbs
I goofed and bought the wrong cheddar, yellow, not white, but it didn't matter. This was so darn good (and easy)! My husband held the title of CHAMPION MAC AND CHEESE MAKER, but guess who just stole the crown? Yum! Tomatoes really make this special. I like that this rec. uses real chesse, not Velveeta. I would be proud to serve this to my guests!
This recipe is not as creamy as a southern cook or diner might prefer. It also lacks flavor. It is indeed quite simple to make, a definite plus. The varied textures of the soft pasta with the crispy bread crumb topping are also nice. I added some freshly cracked pepper and paprika on top of the pasta prior to covering the dish with the remainder of the cheese and bread crumbs. I also used a bit more cheese and doubled the amount of bread crumbs. Still, the dish did not turn out as cheesy as I would have preferred. I could not find shredded sharp white cheddar cheese, so I bought blocks and shredded them myself. I would suggest adding a dash of salt to the recipe to bring out the flavors. Overall, the family seemed to have enjoyed the recipe. Nevertheless, they all agree it could have been creamier/cheesier.
The bacon and onions really gave it an adult taste, yet kids still loved it. My 1 year old loved it too!
This is a great recipe. The Cheddar Cheese soup adds a new dimension to the cheese taste and the stewed tomatoes add just the tiniest extra zest! I will definitely make it again.
This was great! my entire family loved it!! the only thing i did different was add a bit extra tomato and i used medium orange cheddar because i dont like sharp white, and it turned out fantastic!
I followed the recipe but instead of white Cheddar cheese, I shredded pepper jack cheese for an added kick.
It was okay I have had better.... just wasn't cheesy enough
