Company is Coming Mac and Cheese

Category Pastas

Excellent taste, pretty, very nutritious, on hand ingredients, and cheap.


  • 2 cups elbow macaroni, uncooked
  • 1 28 oz tin tomatoes, of your choice
  • 6 cheese slices, whatever kind you have on hand
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 half stick of butter flour
  • salt and pepper
  • handful of crackers



Cook macaroni, drain and set aside. Melt butter, add flour. When it thickens, add milk and salt and pepper. This a a basic white sauce at this point. Add enough milk or water to keep it just right, not too thick not too runny. Melt cheese slices in it and remove from heat.

Mix mac together with cheese sauce, pour half in a big casserole. Open tomatoes and dump in, do not mix. Add remaining on top of tomatoes. Add salt and pepper, crunch up crackers and put on top. Bake for a half hour or until bubbly, feeds eight, so good! This is quick and cheap and you can even substitute cheese spread for slices if pantry is really low.
