As other reviewers mentioned, this is not a traditional, creamy mac 'n cheese. Though you could probably make it that way by adding in some cream cheese, etc. Anyway, after reading the other reviews, I added another 4 oz. of cheese (I used 2%, sharp cheddar), the italian style stewed toms, and also threw in a few dashes of garlic salt. YUM! Not gourmet, but cheap, yummy, quick and easy. And definitely family friendly...my 6 year old and 18 mos. old both loved it.
Only other tips I would add is make sure to keep and include the juice from the stewed toms (will help with moistness/flavor), and I covered it with foil for the 30 minutes then boosted the heat and took off the foil for an additional five. Turned out wonderfully moist, and just a bit crispy in places on top.
Thanks for the easy recipe...definitely a keeper for us! And something fun for the kids to make on their own someday.
