I added spices to the tomato sauce--oregano, dried onion, garlic, basil, and pepper. I also used shredded mozzarella cheese. Very simple, but very delicious.

Instead of using the sprinked cheese, I used american cheese slices. My husband loves the edges of crusted mac and cheese! Also...this was done in about 14 minutes.

I made this tonight, and was worried about the taste of the tomato sauce with the cheese; I cut it down to one of the small cans of tomato sauce instead. It was delicious! Just a hint of tomato in the background. However, because I also added ground beef, onions and mushrooms I had to add a little milk to make up for the lack of tomato sauce. Excellent, especially with whole grain pasta.
